Irrigation Systems

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An Irrigation Permit is required before you install any lawn irrigation system which you permanently connect to the City’s water supply.

A lawn sprinkler permit is not required when making repairs to the piping of an existing lawn irrigation system unless the back-flow prevention device is being replaced.

A backflow prevention device must be inspected and approved upon installation of the system and prior to its use.

After the system has been completed an inspection by a State certified back flow prevention tester must be conducted and a cross connection test report form must be completed. This form must be returned to the Inspection Services Department within 72 hours of test completion.

Apply online at www.mygovernmentonline.org  for a lawn sprinkler permit, select  irrigation application  and upload the stamped irrigation plan.

After the irrigation system is installed and backflow device is tested, please request the backflow inspection at www.mygovernmentonline.org and have a copy of the backflow report in the meter box for the inspector to pick up.
