Seattle DCI will have information tables at this event where you can talk with inspectors about your project. This is a great opportunity for free one-on-one help navigating side sewer connections for your rain garden or cistern project (if needed).

Inspectors will also be able to answer permitting questions related to some other home improvement projects.
