- Once engineering design has been completed and reviewed by CUD, plans will be stamped for construction and submitted to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for approval.
- After state approval, a Notice to Proceed will be issued to the contractor by CUD prior to the start of the water line construction. Public sewer lines must be installed prior to the construction of water lines.
- All new water lines must be inspected by authorized CUD personnel and installed in accordance with current CUD Technical Specifications prior to acceptance.
- Upon completion of the construction work all water lines must be disinfected and subjected to the necessary pressure tests. CUD will take the bacteriological samples for testing.
- Once bacteriological testing and pressure testing have been completed and approved, a “Cost of Construction” must be submitted by the developer/contractor to CUD.
- Once all of the steps listed above have been completed, the new water line is eligible for acceptance by CUD upon the signing of a letter of acceptance by the inspector and the developer/contractor. The contractor must enter into a one (1) year warranty period agreement from the date of formal acceptance for repairing any leaks or maintenance issues.
