Seattle Public Utilities Mami Hara, General Manager/CEO

Street Restoration

The water service customer is responsible for street and sidewalk restoration related to new water service installations and/or retirement of existing water services. For restoration work done by an approved contractor, a separate restoration permit is required to perform this work in the city right-of-way.

Customers are responsible for the full cost of street right-of-way restoration, which may include:

  • Paving
  • Curb and gutter
  • Sidewalks
  • Wheelchair ramps

The specific restoration requirements which apply are determined by the Street and Sidewalk Opening and Restoration Director’s Rule (5-2009).
