The purpose of the building permit process is to ensure that projects are constructed and installed in accordance with the California Building Code, Sacramento County regulations and related building laws. These building codes and ordinances are intended to ensure your project is safe and a benefit to you and the overall quality of our community.
Building without a permit is against the law.

- Water heaters
