Irrigation Inspection

Section 49.238 of the Texas Water Code establishes and requires the efficient use of water in irrigation.  In compliance with this law, Water District 17 adopted a Landscape Irrigation Policy to promote water conservation and insure proper design and installation of irrigation systems.  The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires a licensed technician to be on-site during installation, and irrigation permit posted and a set of system plans on-site.

Permit and Inspection fees for irrigation systems vary based on the meter size required and the number of zones in the system.
