To connect water, sewer and electrical systems of your structure you must make a deposit for utilities and pay a tap fee (if new installation).  You or your plumber/electrician need to check with the Utility Department to see where the lines need to be run to connect to existing services.  Temporary or construction meters must be requested two weeks prior to project start date to schedule installation.  All fees and deposits MUST be paid prior to any connection. Refer to fee schedule below for current deposits and tapping fees.
The release of temporary utilities for construction purposes will be allowed with a utility deposit; however, this does not authorize occupancy of the building.  Temporary utilities and equipment/appliance checks are not a connect for permanent service and may be disconnected at any time for non-compliance or inspections which do not pass code requirements.
