Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
The property at the listed address has a seepage pit that seems to be overflowing. It drains across a public road, onto my property, down my driveway and stands on Topanga Canyon Blvd. This situation has existed for a long time. As I read the codes, that situation makes the house uninhabitable. Can Building and Safety terminate this nuisance?

ANSWER:
Please contact the County of Los Angeles Department of Environmental Health Services at (626) 430 5380 to report your concerns regarding the private sewage disposal system. A link to the Report-a-Problem page is provided for your convenience.
