Plumbing Permits

Before any plumbing work is done or any additions are made to old work, excepting necessary repairs, a plumbing permit must be obtained from the Public Works. Plumbing permits will be issued only to New Hampshire Licensed Master Plumbers. A current plumbing license must be displayed each time a permit is issued. 


Homeowners desiring to do their own plumbing work must obtain approval from the Director and/or the Plumbing Inspector. Homeowners must have the skills required for this work.
