Acceptance and Turnover

After achieving a passing final inspection, the complete acceptance package can be submitted to the PSLUSD. The acceptance package will be reviewed within 7 calendar days. Permits must be certified/have clearance at this time. For FDEP permits, the PSLUSD will sign the FDEP certification forms for the EOR to submit to FDEP.

After permit clearance and package approval, the project will be accepted. Upon acceptance of the project and permit certification, the work order for the setting of the water meter and the installation and testing off the backflow assembly (domestic only) will be issued with the work usually done in 1 to 2 business days. Water and/or wastewater facilities can become active, and monthly billing will start at this time. PSLUSD will now own and maintain the facilities.
