Yes. The WMC requires that you have a permit before installing a new sprinkler system. The permit can be obtained at the Town Hall, 301 Walnut Street. In compliance with the state law, you must upgrade the existing back flow prevention device installed on the system, tested at the time of installation, and tested annually by a state-certified tester.
If work is done to repair, expand or modify an existing sprinkler system with an unapproved back flow device, the customer must upgrade the existing back flow device to current standards. The new back flow prevention device must be tested upon installation and then annually by a state-certified tester.
