Inspections and Locates

How to Schedule Inspections 
All inspection requests must be submitted by email to inspections@sacwsd.org.

A inspection can also be requested by filling out the Inspection Request Form 

The District Inspectors perform scheduled inspections of new water / wastewater infrastructures and locates between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. Please have your requests emailed in before 3:00 pm as inspection requests received after 3:00 pm are not guaranteed for next day scheduling.
