If you are doing repair or replacement of plumbing inside a structure, a Plumbing Permit from the Town of Manchester Building Department may be required for any work to plumbing fixtures INSIDE the building foundation. For specific questions you should call the Building Department at 860-647-3052.
However, if you are doing any work to plumbing fixtures or pipes that are OUTSIDE the building foundation and if the structure has Water and/or Sewer service provided by the Town of Manchester Water and Sewer Department, you will most likely need a Water and Sewer Permit from the Town of Manchester Water and Sewer Department.
From the Town of Manchester Water and Sewer Department Rules and Regulations, Section 5.02 "WATER AND SEWER PERMIT":
"Any individual making connection to, renewal of, replacement of, repairs to, extension of or termination of any portion of the water distribution system, private fire protection system, private water mains, any water service pipe, the sanitary sewer collection system, sanitary sewer main and/or any sanitary sewer lateral shall obtain a water permit and/or sanitary sewer permit from the Town of Manchester prior to commencing the work."
For ownership purposes, the water service is owned by the property owner from the outside water service shutoff (typically placed at the front property line) to the house, up to the connection to the water meter.
For ownership purposes, the sanitary sewer service is owned by the property owner from the building foundation to the point where the lateral enters the sanitary sewer main, including the tee/wye connection and, if applicable, the chimney structure.
The Property Owner, or his/her designated agent, shall apply for the permit. You are encouraged to submit the permit application electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, you may make an appointment to bring in the permit to the Engineering Maps and Records Unit located at Lincoln Center, Second Floor, 494 Main Street, by calling (860) 647- 3152.
