Courtesy Notice / Notice of Violation
If you've received a courtesy letter or notice of violation, it means that your property recently met a trigger that requires a PSL compliance certificate, and you have not yet obtained one. These triggers include
- buying or selling a property,
- building or remodeling in excess of $100,000,
- or changing the water meter size.
How to Obtain a Compliance Certificate
- Check your property's compliance status here.
- Hire a contractor to check your PSL and perform repairs or replacement if necessary.
- Schedule an EBMUD inspection to verify that the PSL is leak-free (typically, your contractor will do this step).
- A compliance certificate will be issued once the PSL passes inspection.
Need Extra Time?
If you need extra time to come into compliance with the PSL requirements, your property is eligible for a Time Extension Certificate (TEC) which can give you an additional 6 months.
You may appeal a decision, action, or determination made by EBMUD within 30 calendar days of the decision, action, or determination. The appeals form can be found here.
