Utility Inspections

The City of Beverly is committed to providing safe and reliable utility services to its residents while also maintaining the integrity of the natural environment. Some of the utility services that the City provides include sewage collection, drinking water distribution, and stormwater management. In order to better manage these utilities, the City is currently conducting property inspections to document the status of private utilities, particularly at the points of connection with the City’s utilities. These inspections will enable the City to plan for future improvements, identify issues contributing to higher utility bills, and ensure public health and safety measures are in place.

The City would like to conduct a brief inspection of your property to locate and document the status of existing utilities. To schedule an inspection appointment, please use the Calendly calendar below. If you would like to speak with someone directly, you may call the inspector, Andrew Flannagan (National Water Main), at (617) 531-0839 or send an email to propertyinspection@dewberry.com.

As a participant in this optional inspection program, you will be helping the City achieve its goals and provide a direct benefit to you: 

  1. Reduced risk of sewer backups and overflows 
  2. Reduced volume of treated wastewater 
  3. Improved water billing and accounting
  4. Ensuring water quality protection
  5. Rehabilitated sewer service laterals

The City has contracted National Water Main Cleaning Company (NWMCC) to perform the property inspections and Dewberry Engineers of Boston to help facilitate scheduling. Inspectors will carry City-issued ID cards and have successfully passed a CORI background check. We request your cooperation with the inspectors. The inspection will require access to the basement of the building as well as driveway and parking areas within the property. The inspection should not take longer than 30 minutes.
