REMINDER Water Meter Inspections

All new and replaced water meters must be inspected prior to use. Inspection of water meters typically occurs at Insulation stage of your project and must be passed prior to requesting an Occupancy or Final inspection. Occupancy and or Final Inspection requests will not be granted until the water meter is passed.

Contact Service King at 905-833-5321 to schedule your water meter inspection.

 

REMINDER Approved permit documents must be on site

As per the Ontario Building Code and Building Code Act, the approved stamped permit documents are required to be onsite at all times. If the Township approved permit documents are not available at time of inspection, the site will be deemed not ready and the inspection will not be conducted. A new inspection will then need to be requested by the permit holder for an alternate date.
