Inspection Request Turn-Around
Inspections 
Meter pit and service line inspections are completed the following day of the request not including the day the request was submitted. Inspection requests must be received before 3:00 p.m. on the day of the request to ensure following day inspection. 

With the exception of emergencies, inspection of new facilities by the District or District's Representatives shall not be performed or scheduled between 3:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, nor on weekends or holidays. To schedule a inspection on a particular day, the request must be made by fax, and must be received in the District office a minimum of 48 hours prior to the needed inspection, unless there is a legitimate emergency. In the event that work is required to be performed outside the previously stated times, the District shall be contacted at least one week in advance of the required inspections to make the appropriate arrangements. If the contractor requires a inspection to be made outside of the times identified herein, a $100.00 inspection fee shall be assessed and collected prior to each "after hours" inspection.
