Utility & Site Inspection
The Engineering Services Division (ESD) is charged with the construction inspection of all privately and publicly funded public improvements. ESD responsibilities include:
- Inspecting and approving all new or reconstructed public improvements and utility mains (i.e., streets, roadways, sidewalks, curbing, bridges, water, sanitary sewer and storm drains)
- Inspecting and approving all new or reconstructed service connections to these public utilities
- Assisting the Community Planning Division on the inspection of private site improvements as required by the City Planning Board
The ESD inspects the construction of these service connections, public improvements, and site improvements for compliance with city and state standards and regulations to help safeguard public health and safety and to ensure that a quality long lasting product is obtained.
The required inspection fee or inspection fee deposit must be provided to the Engineering Services Division prior to the start of any proposed construction of water and sewer utility mains, water and sewer service connections, or public improvement construction. The Engineering Services Division may be contacted to provide an estimate of the required inspection fee deposit. City inspection services are charged against this deposit; additional funds may be requested or the remaining balance refunded upon successful project completion. Other permit fees may apply.
