Remodels & Fire Service

If you are remodeling or rebuilding a home or making commercial tenant improvements which triggers the addition of fire sprinklers this page will outline the process of constructing a new fire water service or hydrant.

New Unit

If you are building a brand new unit (i.e., the number of habitable units on the property is increasing) or your commercial unit is changing use, please visit the New Residential Building Water Service page for accessory dwelling unit (ADU), single-family home, commercial or another new service information.

Size of Fire Service

The size of the fire service is determined by the Fire District. They will need to review your building plans and sign off on the bottom portion of our Fire Protections Requirement Form (PDF). You will need to hire your own contractor to install the new Fire Service. This process is detailed in the Applicant Installed Service Flow Chart (PDF).

Contact us to have a Staff member review your project and get back to you for the next steps.

Costs & Rates

  • Each fire service will require one new water meter – the standard 5/8 inch size. Please refer to our current Rates and Fees page.
  • You will also be responsible for paying an Admin/Inspection deposit to the District to cover our time reviewing and inspecting your Contractors work. This amount is determined based on the size of the project.
