Utility Requirements

The Utility Department regulates connections to water, sewer and storm water infrastructure.  Permits for a connection requires completed applications, fees and has specific contractor requirements. A  The Building and Plumbing codes along with the Soldotna Municipal Code do not allow certain illegal connections such as utilities serving several properties off of the same service, utilities served by passing under other structures, improper materials, or improper burial depth.  Some utilities require the acquisition of easements prior to their construction.  Contact the Utility Department for more information.

  • Use of Public Utilities – Properties within 300’ of existing mains are required to connect.
  • Existing Utilities – not all areas within the City limits of Soldotna are served with public utilities.  Some properties require onsite water wells and onsite waste water disposal systems (septic tanks and leach fields).  Contact our Utility Department for more information.  Contact the State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation for the construction of onsite water wells and waste water disposal systems.
  • Single service to properties – each property is required to have a separate service.  Properties found to not be in compliance can be restricted until the utility connection is properly connected.
  • Main Line Extensions – Developers of property can apply to extend utilities to their property.  Contact our Utility Department and the Public Works Department to discuss this option.
