Water and Sewer Availability

Is your property near a water or sewer main?

If the property is within 400 feet of an existing sewer main and the owner wants to build a house the property owner must connect to the existing sewer main. The property owner must connect to the City's water system unless the property has an existing well, is not in Eloy's water district or has grandfathered water rights.

It is the owners responsibility to extend water/sewer mains and services to their property.

Depending on the situation:

  1. The first step is to obtain the services of a registered engineer to prepare off-site water/sewer plans. 
  2. The owner shall obtain the services of a licensed contractor to perform the physical water/sewer connection to the main. The City does not have costs on what a contractor might charge as it would be different for each situation. The contractor will provide a construction cost estimate which is used for permit fees.
  3. The contractor will then submit for a right-of-way permit.
  4. The property owner pays the right-of-way permit fees, development fees, capacity charges and the work can begin.
