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.
