Welcome to the Engineering Department


Irrigation Systems and Underground Dog Fences

Homeowners with any portion of an irrigation system and/or dog fence installed within the Town's Right of Way must complete a Waiver. In the event that a homeowner is unwilling to sign the Waiver, they must have a Contractor licensed with the Town of Southington apply for an Excavation Permit or relocate said irrigation system and/or dog fence outside of the Town Right-of-Way. The irrigation system or dog fence must be inspected by an Engineering Inspector. Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Engineering Department at 860.276.6231.
