Operations During Shelter-In-Place Order


Contra Costa County has extended the Shelter-in-Place order (“Orders”) until May 31, 2020, while easing some of the previous conditions. Under the new orders, all construction projects will be allowed to resume as long as the project complies with safety protocols included with the order. 

As social distancing requirements remain mandatory, Central San will continue to limit public access to the permit counter in order to adhere to 6-foot social distancing mandates for the health and safety of the public and Central San employees.

During this time, staff will be available to maintain daily operations.  The permit counter phone lines  {(925)229-7371} and e-mail {permits@centralsan.org} will be answered during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). 

Sewer Permits: Applications for sewer permits can be obtained on Central San’s website (centralsan.org) and submitted electronically to permits@centralsan.org.  Permit applications will be processed by Central San staff who will contact applicants via phone or e-mail to discuss permit requirements, status of permits and assist with electronic payment and permit issuance as much as possible. 

Plan Reviews: A drop-off box will be located outside of the permit counter main entrance (5019 Imhoff Place) where development plans requiring Central San approval can be placed for processing.  Please contact Central San’s permit counter staff prior to visiting our office to discuss the plan review submittal process and for assistance with submittal requirements, application forms and processing times.  Plans can be dropped off and picked up by appointment only

Inspections: Central San’s inspection staff are available to conduct sewer inspections.  You can contact the Central San Inspection Hotline at (925)229-7373.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time and will continue to post updates regarding our operations as they become available.
