The James City Service Authority (JCSA) provides a fee-free Pre-Construction Courtesy Inspection (PDF) to validate existing water and sewer infrastructure prior to contractor occupying the site. This inspection will include all water and sewer infrastructures.
Requesting an Inspection
Building contractors must contact JCSA 2 working days prior to occupying the property with material or equipment. The offer is voided if the site has been occupied, to include clearing, razing, material, or equipment prepositioning, or construction of any kind.
