Public Works Ordinances


IVGID's Compliance department works with property owners to ensure public health and safety through the Public Works Ordinances. They perform plan review on water and sewer projects, grease trap inspections, trash violation investigations, and backflow inspections.

Answers for many of the questions we receive are found in the FAQ page.  


The backflow program was created as a requirement by the State of Nevada, under NAC 445A.67185.  Our backflow program was approved by the State in 2002 and this program helps to ensure safe potable water for residents.  Backflow devices are required on systems such as irrigation, hydronic heat and fire sprinklers and the device must be tested on an annual basis.

Residential homes need to make sure they are not putting fats, oils and grease (FOG) down their drains.  These items can cause sewer backups into a home and lead to costly maintenance in the sewer infrastructure.   FOG should be collected in a can or jar and then be disposed of in the trash.  Reusable grease cans and heat resistant plastic liners are also available at the Public Works office for residents.

The Compliance department also works with businesses to ensure that grease traps or interceptors are installed and cleaned on regular intervals. 


The Compliance department works with homeowners upon receiving a complaint about trash which was not contained per the Ordinances.  Since we live in an area with wildlife, residents need to make sure to contain their trash so that bears, coyotes and other wildlife d o not have access to the waste.  More information about trash containment and wildlife issues can be found on the Bear & Wildlife Awareness page.
