Temporary use of potable water from the City's water distribution system by means of a temporary water tap, a temporary service line, a fire hydrant, or other devices shall require a permit from the City, subject to availability. Said permit shall include provisions for payment of water used, installation of a meter, installation of an appropriate backflow prevention device, deposit and daily rental charge. For temporary hydrant water, only City designated ("blue top") fire hydrants may be used unless otherwise approved on the permit.
The City will require a minimum of two working days advance notice prior to the issuance of any temporary water use permit.
At its sole discretion, the City may suspend temporary water use permits with one (1) week’s notice.
