Water and sewer contractors plan, install, and manage the installation and repair of sewer and water services.
Large projects can include working on manholes, force mains, sewer pump stations, storm sewer systems, sanitary sewer systems, underground utility and street construction, water service connections, side sewers, and much more based on the obligee's requirements. The obligee is the entity that has the bond requirement that is most likely based on an awarded contract.
Licensing requirements vary by state, but could consist of examinations, exam fees, and documented experience. Contractors may also need to obtain a surety bond before work on a project can begin.
If a payment and/or performance surety bond is required for a water or sewer contract project, the bond amount will vary depending on factors such as the state where the project is taking place, the project size, and a contractor's experience.
The bond is a guarantee that protects the public health and the environment by ensuring proper construction and installation, and guards against defective workmanship and materials. The bond also protects the obligee from financial harm, and ensures the contractor works within the city's construction standards and regulations.
