If you live within the PLAWCS district and are constructing a new building, then yes, you need to contact PLAWCS prior to starting construction.

New connections, whether gravity or lateral, require the same deposit for each connection unless otherwise approved by the Joint Power's Board. Once service is completely installed, unused monies will be returned to the property owner. If costs exceed the deposit, the owner may be responsible for the difference.
