    How do I Set-up a Payment Plan for My Connection Costs?

    As a courtesy, the Palm Bay Utilities Department offers Connection Payment Agreements to owner-occupied residential accounts, providing those customers with the opportunity to pay their connection costs for up to five years. An appointment is required to set up a payment plan. Call Palm Bay Utilities Customer Service Division at (321) 952-3420 to schedule an appointment.

  5. Get Connected to the System (From Septic to Sewer)
    • Once the application process is complete, the Utilities Customer Service Office will issue a work order to have the clean-out and/or tap-in point located for the sewer service lateral connection.
    • It is recommended that you obtain the services of a licensed septic tank contractor to perform the abandonment of the septic tank.  The contractor or the property owner will need to obtain a permit from the Department of Health's Environmental Health Services Office.  You may contact the Department of Health by calling (321) 633-2100 and selecting option 1.
    • A building permit will also need to be obtained from the City's Building Division located in the City Hall Annex at 120 Malabar Road SE.  Phone:  (321) 953-8924.
    • Once permits have been obtained from Department of Health and the Building Division, the licensed septic contractor will perform the abandonment.  An environmental health inspector will conduct an on-site inspection at the time of abandonment.
    • It is recommended that homeowners obtain the services of a Florida licensed and insured plumber to perform the connection from the sewer lateral to your home.  It is also recommended to perform this connection prior to septic tank abandonment so there will not be an interruption of service.
