A land operations permit may be required for a construction project. This City of Pittsburgh ordinance is administered and enforced by the Department of Permits, Licenses and Inspections (PLI) but requires a review by PWSA before a permit will be issued.
The PWSA review of a land operations application is to ensure that no PWSA infrastructure is affected by the scope of work. A full submission package includes all documentation required by PLI. Generally, the documents include a permit application and drawings stamped by a certified engineer.
For complete regulations and requirements, please visit PLI’s website. All questions should be referred to PLI.
To request a PWSA review of a land operations permit application, all documents must be submitted electronically via e-Builder.
A review fee of $250 is required. Fees can be paid for at the counter or mail by check, money order, or credit card. Cash is not accepted. Address to the attention of Permits.
