Updated Design and Construction Standards (DRAFT)

For the last 18 months, the Department of Public Utilities has been working to update and modernize the department’s design and construction standards.  We have also updated many of our standard forms and details and have developed a list of approved materials and manufacturers. 

Final drafts of these documents have been prepared, and we would like the local development and construction community to have a chance to review and comment on the revisions and updates.  To that end, we have posted the final draft documents to the DPU section of the county’s website and ask that you review them and provide your comments and questions.  

Please email your comments and questions to utilities@goochlandva.us (or use the link below) by the close of business on September 22, 2023.  

You may also contact Wayne Stephens at 804-556-5835 if you wish to discuss any aspect of the updated Design and Construction Standards.
