What Do I Do Once I Get This Permit?

Permit Information
Once an encroachment permit is issued:
  • If your work involves digging, call USA Underground Alert at (800) 227-2600, two working days prior to the start to the start of work
  • Notify the inspector of your project at least one working day prior to commencement and upon completion of work
    • The inspector's name and telephone number is located at the bottom of the permit
    • Call the Engineering Division at (510) 494-4700 between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm with any questions.

Issuance of an Encroachment Permit does not relieve the permittee of the responsibility to obtain permits that may be required by other agencies.
