Denver's new e-permit system is not just for permits. You can also use the system to view inspection comments and results, check the status of a permit, schedule inspections, and more.

The third-party inspection form and your inspection report must be dropped off in-person or submitted to Building.email@example.com within 7 days of the final inspection.

In order to protect the safety, prosperity, health and welfare of all city residents, city code regulations require that property owners keep their properties safe and well-maintained. About two dozen neighborhood inspectors handle public education and zoning enforcement throughout Denver’s 155 square miles. Most education and enforcement happens in response to reports that citizens make to 3-1-1, although inspectors also perform proactive inspections.
Please see below for phone numbers, times and locations to submit a request for a Wastewater / SUDP (sewer usage and drainage permit) inspection.
