Development Services

The Philadelphia Water Department strives to support development projects through transparent requirements and streamlined processes in order to ensure regulatory compliance and protection of our city’s infrastructure and water resources.

Multiple PWD programs provide review and inspection services for building developments or other projects proposing connections to PWD’s water or sewer system.

PWD is also a prerequisite review for many zoning, building, demolition, and site permits issued by the Department of Licenses and Inspections.

Each program’s homepage can be accessed by selecting the above links. Each homepage contains information about the program’s responsibilities, contact details, and instructions for how to apply for the PWD prerequisite approval or permit.
