You may think you know everything about the home you live in. Then again, you may be very wrong if you’ve never considered what goes on underneath your home. Maybe you’ve done some work on your sewer before, or maybe you’ve never even given it any thought. Either way, odds are your sewer has had work done before, and either way it’s always good to know what your sewer has been through in the past. This knowledge can save you a lot of back breaks, time, and of course cash. Luckily for all of us here in the city of Tacoma, side sewer inspection records are kept for many houses. These records can be easily accessed through a series of simple steps.

FINDING YOUR HOMES RECORDS

Your first step to finding your homes sewer inspection records would be to visit www.govme.org. This website is your “one-stop shop” for everything Tacoma related. They provide records, permits, drawings, and GIS mapping information to citizens and businesses all over Tacoma. In this particular case, you will want to scroll down and look for “Permit Info” in a blue bar on the left-hand side. Once you have located this, you should see a list of subheadings compiled beneath it. The subheading directly below the blue bar will be labeled “Permit/ Site History.” When you click on those words, you will be redirected to a search page where you can find your address.

When searching your address, it is suggested that you use only a partial street name. For example: if your home address is on S 68th St, you should only type “68th.” This will allow the search engine to locate your home properly, and bring up a couple options for where it might be. For whatever reason, typing a full address into this search bar will typically not bring up any results.

Once you have located your desired address, you can click on it. Unless there are no records for your home, this will bring up a list of past inspection records for your review. Govme.org is a fantastic resource, and is perfect for anyone purchasing a home or just curious about past work done on your current home.

To Recap:

  1. Visit www.govme.org
  2. Look for “Permit Info” and click “Permit/ Site history”
  3. Type your partial address into the search bar
  4. Click your correct address if/ when it comes up
  5. Browse your sewer inspection records


These simple steps will allow you to learn more about your home’s sewer system, and will ultimately save you time, and money in the future. Of course the best way to get an accurate idea of what’s currently going on under your home is to schedule a camera inspection. We are always more than happy to aid you in this service. Just call our office at 253-331-1206 to schedule!
