This webpage contains information on the Water and Wastewater Services (WWS) Utility Connection Permit (UCP). The UCP is the process by which WWS allows connection to or modification of its potable water, wastewater and/or reclaimed water systems. Installation or modification of water mains, fire protection double detector checks, fire hydrants, gravity sewer mains, force mains, lift stations, pump stations and sewer laterals almost always require a UCP. Installation of small diameter water services to a single building usually does not require a UCP.
