Do I need to connect into the sewer line when I sell my house?

If your property line is within 150 feet of a public sewer, yes, you will be required to connect to the public sewer.

If a public sewer is within 150-500 feet of your property line, an application may be made in writing to the Board to declare the Public Sewer “Not Available”.

Please call the Board of Health at 617-898-4886 with questions and read the full Sewer Connection regulation here.
