Water System Construction Specifications

General Developer Specifications and Guidelines

WCSA has developed its General Requirements for Developer Installed Water Lines and Appurtenances to guide the developer through the entire installation process. This document includes detailed instructions on how to submit, what to submit, work sequencing, regulatory requirements, safety, inspection and other installation processes.

WCSA has also developed its General Water Line Specifications to address technical issues relating to water facilities or other drinking water structures. These specifications are intended for use by WCSA and those constructing water distribution system improvements that will come under the ownership of WCSA. All work performed for WCSA – either under its direct supervision or by developers/contractors constructing improvements that will come under the ownership of WCSA – must follow these specifications.

Developers are encouraged to download a copy of the specifications. Thorough review of this document and strict adherence to the guidelines contained therein will provide WCSA management and engineering personnel the information necessary to perform an efficient review of the development project. All proposed projects must be formally approved by WCSA prior to the start of construction.

Additional questions pertaining to development should be directed to our engineering department at (276) 628-7151.
