The PWSA Developer's Manual and Standard Details outline the rules and regulations to tap into our water and sewer system. We strive to maintain a positive and transparent relationship with our business community partners. If any requirements are unclear or your property doesn't quite fit into the standards, reach out to our Development Coordinator to discuss.
PWSA's Developer's Manual is a guide on the procedures and regulations for developments tapping into existing public sewer or water facilities and for constructing new facilities to be dedicated to PWSA. The purpose of this manual is to describe the development permit application process, the requirements of the application materials, and the developer’s responsibilities. To ensure timely review and approval of tap-in plans, this manual is to be used in conjunction with an open dialogue with PWSA.
At a minimum, this manual will be updated annually. More frequent updates may occur as procedures or regulations change.
PWSA Developer's Manual - Updated March 24th, 2023.
Standard details are a uniform set of specifications for design professionals, contractors, and developers to use for any project connecting to public water and sewer. Standard details are uploaded here to provide guidance but details are subject to change depending on the project scope. This list is not exhaustive and a different detail may be identified during the tap-in drawing review.
All taps, terminations, and facility installations must be made in accordance with PWSA standard details. All applicable details must be included on tap-in plans or private construction drawings to be approved by PWSA prior to beginning any water and sewer work.
