What if I start work without a permit?

Highway

A penalty permit shall be issued to any individual commencing work prior to obtaining a Trench/Street Permit. The fee for this permit shall increase to $1000.00.  The applicant will also be in violations of OSHA regulations and subject to additional fines.


Water/Sewer

As per Commonwealth law, all work done on any connection to the public water or sewer system requires a permit prior to commencing work.  Please be advised that conducting work without a permit is grounds for the revocation of the Drain Layers License. Please call the Water & Sewer Division at 508-841-8506 and complete a permit application to request a Water/Sewer Connection Permit.  Please visit the following link for instructions on submitting a permit online.  How to Apply for a Water/Sewer Permit with ViewPermit
