Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago

To request a copy of an issued permit from our permit archives, please email our Permit Inquiry Inbox at or use the web form below. The email, including a location map of the area in question along with the contact person and phone number, will initiate a search for sewer permits in that area. Please be aware that the MWRD does not issue sewer permits within the City of Chicago unless a direct connection is made to an MWRD intercepting sewer or other facility. Contact the City’s Department of Water Management for such requests.
