  • It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact both EID and the County 48 working hours in advance to schedule the appropriate inspections.
  • Have the contractor performing the work on the job site when the inspection occurs.
  • Visual inspection of all work is required or it cannot be accepted.
  • Call Underground Service Alert (USA) at 811 prior to excavation. (Requires a 48 hour notice).
  • Customers will not receive a call prior to the inspection unless requested in the special directions. The inspection will be completed on the second business day, unless multiple sites have been requested.
