Sprinkler Permit Applications and Inspections

Loveland Municipal Code requires that permit be obtained before installing a new sprinkler system. A permit must also be obtained for work done to repair, expand or modify an existing sprinkler system with an unapproved backflow assembly, and those assemblies must be upgraded. All sprinkler permits are free. Property owners can perform normal maintenance on their sprinkler systems including replacing sprinkler heads, repairing a leak or adding additional zones without obtaining a permit.

Backflow Device Testing and Maintenance

Colorado law requires that a backflow prevention assembly be tested annually by a certified tester. Ask the tester to show you his or her Colorado backflow assembly tester certificate. For a list of certified backflow prevention testers in northern Colorado provided by the Backflow Prevention Education Council of Colorado (BPECC), go to bpecc.us/find-a-tester.html. Once completed, a copy of the backflow prevention device test and maintenance report must be submitted to Loveland Water and Power.

If you would like additional information about the BPECC or become registered with the organization please visit their web page at: www.bpecc.us

Approved Assemblies

Colorado law requires water utilities to protect distribution systems by promoting the proper installation and use of backflow prevention assemblies, to their customers. The Colorado Water Quality Division has identified approved backflow assemblies for use in Colorado. Approved assemblies are marked with the ASSE or USE stamping. Customers should be aware that both approved assemblies and unapproved devices are on the market.
