Fall inspection deadline nears for winter construction projects
October 3, 2018
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The city of Steamboat Springs Public Works Department reminds contractors and homebuilders to plan now for upcoming work during the winter.
Contractors and homeowners who anticipate needing permanent power, a certificate of occupancy, or water or sewer service during the winter months should schedule their project so the grading and drainage improvements along with utility installations are complete and inspected before Nov. 1.
- Right-of-way inspections can be scheduled by contacting Thorne Clark at 970-846-9337 with name, site address and building permit number.
- Water and sewer inspections for single family and duplex homes are conducted through Baseline Engineering at 970-879-1825 or 970-761-0501 until Dec. 31. In 2019, contact the city's Public Works Water & Sewer Division at 970-871-8211.
- Excavation permits may be applied for through the Public Works Streets Division at 970-879-1807.
In addition, all construction dumpsters, port-o-johns and material piles must be out of city right-of-way prior to Nov. 1. To avoid potential citation in the spring, make sure all erosion and sediment control devices are installed and correctly functioning prior to snow fall.
Questions about these programs should be directed to Street Superintendent David Van Winkle or Street Supervisor Tom Martindale.
