The Utility Permitting Group is responsible for overseeing the planning, design, and construction of new water, sewer and mains within the Bay County Utility Service Area. Also, we are responsible for assuring that existing customers who seek changes to their water and sewer usages can be accommodated. All utility work must be approved by Bay County Utility Permitting Department prior to commencement of construction. Listed below are some of the common forms and manuals used. We hope you’ll find this information useful.
