In our Central Louisiana market, it means a sewer system serving a community.  It is similar to city sewer, but just on a smaller scale.  Each house being served then does not require a septic or sewer treatment plant.  The system is monitored by the parish sanitarian.  Therefore the seller of the house is not required to obtain a sewer certificate from the sanitarian within thirty days prior to closing as is required for on-site systems.

Thanks for the clarification! 

Also on a side note I see your username name says Outer Banks. Been there a few times and loved it!

In my area a common sewer means that several homes are connected to a sewer system. Sewer systems require the water to be cleaned in some fashion so there is usually a sewer system where they clean it up. It can be a small common sewer or it can be large and serving a whole community. It differs from a public system in that it is privately owned and you pay something to help cover the costs.
