permit is issued:

Inspector will verify that the lateral is properly capped. The lateral
can be temporarily capped or permanently abandoned. If you choose
to reuse your existing lateral, you will be required to televise
that lateral before re-connecting. USD requires capping so that
debris will not get into our sewer lines.
