The City of Yorba Linda can issue permits for the repair and or replacement of existing systems provided they comply with Tier 1 and 4 requirements of the OWTS Policy and with Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board approval prior to permit issuance by the City of Yorba Linda.
If the system requires minor repairs, such as a new main line, clean out, tank lids, then no connection is required. However, if a system requires a new leach field, pits, or tank then a sewer connection is required.
If financial assistance is required, the homeowner may apply to State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Financial Assistance for funds to create a mini-loan program which is intended to assist property owners with compliance costs (see Legislative intent, Water Code § 13291.5). Assistance is encouraged for private property owners whose cost of complying with the requirements of the policy exceeds one-half of 1% of the current assessed value of the property on which the OWTS is located. For further information, please visit the State Water Resources Control Board website.
