The private sewer pipe connecting a house or business to the public sewer in the street or alley is owned by the property owner, up to and including the point of connection to the public sewer pipe. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the private pipe and protect it from damage caused by roots, grease, etc.
This page shows sewer connection information as determined by Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department database records. While these records are believed to be accurate, a field dye test is required to know connection status with absolute accuracy.
Many valid connections are not shown. In these cases, our records indicate that further research is needed. When a connection is not found here, users should fill out and send to us the "Request for Verification of Sewer" form:

Two areas in Pima County are not included in our records because they are not part of the Publicly Owned Treatment Works (sanitary sewer system and treatment plants) owned and operated by Pima County. The excluded areas are the Ajo area and the Rancho Sahuarita area in the Town of Sahuarita. For Rancho Sahuarita, call (520) 399-1105 for sewer verification.
Our data comes from a number of different sources. Many of the records are very old; others have come to us second or third hand. Some inherited records are incomplete or inaccurate.
Connection data was collected from various agencies that administered portions of the sanitary sewage collection system over the years. In 1979, an Intergovernmental Agreement entered into by the Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (PCRWRD) and the City of Tucson (COT) directed that PCRWRD become the sole authority of the sanitary sewer system. This new agreement transferred all of the COT's connection records to Pima County. Some of the data received during that transfer dated back to the early 1900s. For a complete history of the evolution of the sanitary sewer system in Pima County, see Sanitary Sewer History.
