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.

After the system has been installed and completed. A State certified back flow prevention tester must test the back flow device and a cross connection test report form must be completed. This form must be uploaded to veppollc.com within 72 hours of test completion and the back flow test inspection requested via www.mygovernmentonline.org .

Where to apply:

Apply online at www.mygovernmentonline.org for a lawn sprinkler permit, select  irrigation application  and upload the stamped irrigation plan, as built plans if the irrigation system includes a new water service/water meter.

After the irrigation system is installed and back flow device is tested, please upload the back flow test report to veppollc.com and request the back flow inspection at www.mygovernmentonline.org .

Additional requirements may required if installing a new water tap.
