New Water Mains
The Drinking Water Monitoring section does the testing of new water mains to ensure they meet quality standard before they are allowed to carry drinking water to residents. Contractors that are installing water lines in new or existing subdivisions coordinate through the Planning and Development Department in the requesting of the test.
Chapter 37 of the City of Phoenix Code gives the Water Services Department specific authority for testing water mains. The following excerpts are provided for your review.
