If you are planning a construction project in City of Vicksburg that involves the addition, replacement, repair or alteration of water and sewage systems in or around structures, contact the City of Vicksburg Building and Inspection Department to learn the required and recommended steps for performing plumbing work. This includes work with water service, drains, water mains, sewage disposal systems, sprinkler systems, gas pipe systems and related fixtures and appliances. In addition to issuing permits, providing regulations and inspecting work, the department also provides you with practical guidance in everything from installing sewage systems to modifying a room's plumbing fixtures.

You are required to apply for a plumbing permit before any work can begin. Plumbing permits are based upon the number and types of fixtures, sewers, drains and water service piping that are included in the project. The cost of a plumbing permit is a base fee of $10.00 plus additional costs dependent on the nature of the work.

Once plumbing work has been completed, you can request an inspection from the Building & Inspection Department. An inspection which costs $15.00 per inspection is mandatory before a Certificate of Occupancy can be issued. When requesting an inspection, please give relevant permit numbers, the time, date and place you would like the inspection, and the name of the contractor. Allow a minimum of 24 hours from the time of your request for a plumbing inspector to visit your site. After the inspection has been completed, the inspection card will be marked appropriately if the inspection passed or failed. If you would like a permit application, inspection, or more information about ways the Building & Inspection Department can assist you, visit them at 805 South Street from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, or call them at
(601) 634-4528.
