SDCI is now reporting new Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADUs) and Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (DADUs) permits to King County for the purpose of capacity charges. We are required by code and our agreement with King County to report all new sewer connections to King County. Title 28 of the King County Code requires that we report all new units to the King County Wastewater Treatment Division.
The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections and the City of Seattle are proud to participate in the International Code Council’s annual Building Safety Month campaign this May. This event has been the emphasis of the International Code Council and its predecessors for the past 40 years. The goal and purpose of the International Code Council was to showcase the work and mission of the codes, officials who administer them, and the positive affects the community can receive when they are administered. There are weekly themes throughout May to educate the public on important issues such as being prepared for a disaster. The City of Seattle has been and continues to be a major contributor to the development and implementation of all types of codes relevant to the built environment.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is discontinuing street restoration services for side sewer contractors. This will go into effect February 1, 2018.
Effective February 1, SDCI can no longer send legal documents associated with the approval of your Drainage and Wastewater Control (DWC) plan or the issuance of a side sewer permit to King County for recording. All legal documents to be recorded at King County will now be reviewed and approved as part of the drainage and side sewer plan review associated with a building or site work permit. The applicant will record these documents before SDCI approves the drainage and side sewer plans.
This month’s publication updates include CAM 503, Side Sewer Permits in Seattle, and DR 3-2012, Pike/Pine Overlay District: Character Structures that Cannot be Demolished if Incentives Allowing Additional Height and Floor Size are Used on a Lot Within the Pike/Pine Conservation Overlay District.
