It is not mandatory to connect to the sewer system if it is available to you. You may need to
connect if your septic system does not pass the Title V inspection process.
If you wish to connect to the Town’s sewer system, the connection must be done by a
drainlayer that is licensed in the Town of Auburn. You may pick up the list of licensed
drainlayers at the Sewer Division office or you may download the list from this site. You should
obtain quotes from at least three of the drainlayers to get an estimated cost of the sewer
connection. The drainlayer will obtain the sewer connection permit from the Sewer
Department. The fee for a single sewer connection permit is $100.00.
Sewer Connection Fees
In addition to the permit fee, each new connection requires payment of a sewer Connection
Fee to the Town of Auburn.
A connection fee of $660.00 per bedroom is charged and must be paid prior to the sewer
connection permit being issued.
Connection fees for commercial buildings vary, based on the size and use of the building being
connected. Please contact the Sewer Department office at (508)832-7811 for information on
commercial sewer connection fees.
