New Sewer line connection

Homeowners keep asking why a new sewer line connection is so involved.  The answer is simple. Miami Dade county, City of Miami Beach and the majority of the cities in Dade county require a permit. The scope of work is not limited to the new line.

The contractor will need to close off a portion of the roadway when installing a new sewer line because the main truck line is typically located in the center of the road.
