Connecting to a sewer main provides many benefits over maintaining a septic tank. These include:
- Eliminates bi-yearly visits from the septic tank pumper.
- No worries about leach fields or seepage pits failing. It is maintenance free.
- Allows you to reclaim leach field property to do something else with.
- Increases property value.
As with other utilities, only some parts of RSF have a sewer main running down their street. You can contact the Rancho Santa Fe Community Services District to see if a sewer main is near you. They maintain the sewer system in RSF.

Even if sewer is not available in your street, it might be possible to build a sewer main extension so that you and your neighbors could access it.
