Normal Service Extension - 2232 Review Process


Definition of "Normal Service Extension"

The determination of whether or not a public facility constitutes a normal service extension is undertaken on a case by case basis. However, such extensions are generally defined as the connection of service to individual customers and include the incidental, non generating components of major utility systems such as water, sewer, and telephone lines which are consistent with the character and extent of the existing service system. For example, staff has reviewed under the 2232 Review Process water storage facilities and water transmission pipes/lines which are greater than 24 inches in diameter. Local-serving water lines and water lines which are 24 inches or less in diameter are considered normal service extensions. In addition, wireless telecommunication facilities and cable television transmission facilities, their transmission towers and related equipment are not considered normal service extensions and have been reviewed under the 2232 Review Process while local-serving cable lines to individual residential customers have been considered normal service extensions. Sewage disposal facilities designed to serve less than 14,000 persons which do not include pumping stations, force mains or inverted siphons are also considered normal service extensions consistent with and pursuant to Public Facilities Manual Section 10 0102.3C.
