I have a forced sewer main on my property which the sewer dept has a easement. I'm getting ready to build and the sewer dept has orally told me I cant tap the forced main for sewer because they didnt want anyone on it. They only use it for a transfer between a pump station and the sewer plant.

One map says its a 8" one 12" main.

I'm thinking of getting an engineering company involved to check into it. I was thinking it would need a pump, check valve, etc.

Can anyone think of any other reason why I couldn't realistically tap this forced sewer main?

Maybe because they told you they couldn't? :eek:
Are you going to sue them for the right to tap their force main? :blink:
By the time you pay for attorney fees, an engineer, hookup fees and a competent contractor to do they work I figure you should be able to do it for around $100,000.00. :whistling
But, that's if you win the court fight.

because, if your check valve fails, it's going to fill your house full of sheet. btw, there is a DIY site i'm sure that will be recommended to you. besides, it's THEIR line, they have an easement to THEIR line. you shouldn't be here as a homeowner asking dumb contractors legal questions. talk to your attorney.
