Plumbers & Contractors Access to Authority Facilities

Updated: February 9, 2021

Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority (BCWSA) has adopted regulations establishing requirements for all plumbers and contractors that connect or expose any BCWSA water and/or sanitary sewer facilities when performing work on private public water and public sewer lines that connect to Authority mains.

The regulations require that all plumbers and contractors be licensed by the Authority to perform such work when it may impact, in any respect, Authority facilities, which said license will only be issued following the successful completion of a test being administered by the Authority. That requirement may be waived if the individual has an equivalent license. The Authority will decide on a case-by-case basis as to whether another license is equivalent.

To insure compliance with the Authority’s regulations, the Authority requests that you review this correspondence and post the requirements on your website, as well as providing notice to any plumbers or contractors who may request any permits from your municipality to work on private public water or public sewer lines where that work may relate to connecting or exposing Authority facilities.

We would also request that you conspicuously post the need for a license on the permit form. If you have any questions or would like a further clarification, please contact BCWSA at 215-343-2538 x113.

For more information regarding these regulations, please review the BCWSA Board of Director’s resolutions below.
