What is a private sanitary sewer collection system?

This is a combination of multiple residences on a common interest development, for example apartment complexes or office buildings, where multiple lateral lines from the exterior of the building(s) combine to a private main sewer line that connects to the main public sewer line, including the connection. Townhome, condominium, apartment complex, and duplexes may be either PSSCS or PSL depending on the connection between the building and the city sewer main. Contact the City if clarification is needed for the property.
