 Plumbing Permits

build2 - 612x612In these unprecedented cold temperatures, we are aware that many of our citizens are in need of plumbing repairs. Permits and inspections are important to ensure that the repairs are done correctly and performed by a qualified, licensed plumber. The law requires it. In an effort to serve your permitting needs better, Building Inspections staff is working to process your plumbing permit applications and schedule inspections as quickly as possible.

All permit applications are online at Coppell Self Service (CSS) portal For additional information on permitting, contractor registration, and the latest updates on the Building Inspection Department’s operations, go to Building Inspections.

You can arrange inspections for plumbing repair permits by calling 972-304-3516 or emailing Building Inspections when the repair is completed during normal business hours. Please note that this phone number is for plumbing inspections only. Inspections may be conducted by Remote Video Inspection or in person, depending on the nature of the repair. After hours, if you have an emergency repair (defined as an occupied residence without essential utility service requiring a release from the City), please call 972-304-3551.
