Why did my final inspection/water meter install fail?
Water utility employees use a checklist that identifies the proper installation criteria for passing a service or meter. Upon completion of the inspection, a copy of this checklist is provided to the requestor to identify discrepancies, if any, or the approval of the service/meter as installed. Once the discrepancies have been corrected you can request another inspection by calling 480-782-3700.

What is the cost of a new ERT or register?

There is a fire hydrant with a 'out of service' ring on it. When will it be repaired?
Fire hydrants can be identified as out of service for two reasons. The first is if it has a mechanical failure and the other is if it is a new hydrant that hasn’t been inspected yet. Hydrants with malfunctions are scheduled daily for repairs. New Hydrants are scheduled for testing once the contractor has completed the set of hydrants he was commissioned to install. As either of these events occur the out of service ring is removed.
