Plumber or Homeowner Installation Info

You can also choose to use a Licensed/Insured Plumber to make the installation to your home, or as a homeowner you can perform the work yourself.  The plumber or homeowner would be responsible for obtaining the appropriate permit, installation, and coordination of inspection with the City's Building Department. 
  • Once the line is installed, the City’s Building Division should be notified by the licensed plumber / homeowner to schedule an inspection for proper depth, size and connection.

  • A Building Inspector will perform a cross-connection inspection and turn on the water.  A cross-connection inspection is necessary to ensure that there is no interconnection between drinking water and non-potable sources of water.  Please note, it may be required that an authorized adult be present at this time, depending on the location of the well.

  • It is recommended that customers connecting to the City’s water supply abandon their well; however, some residents may wish to maintain their well for irrigation purposes.

  • If a resident wishes to abandon his or her well, the services of a Florida licensed water well contractor must be obtained.  The water well contractor must obtain a permit application from the Brevard County Health Department.  For more information, please contact the Brevard County Health Department’s Environmental Health Services Office at (321) 633-2100, option 2, or click here for more information.
