Service Connection Permit

Attention Contractors:

In response to the recent pandemic surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the City of Beaumont is temporarily adjusting their service connection inspection procedure to keep operators and contractors safe. Until further notice:

  • We will continue with service connection inspections but will not require the contractor to be onsite for inspections.
  • We will email the contractor with any concerns or confirmation of the approved inspection.
  • If the contractor is on-site we will maintain social distancing.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call 780-929-4306, or email
