Becoming a Landscape Irrigation Contractor
The City of Sioux Falls requires a "Landscape Irrigation Contractor License" of all contractors doing lawn sprinkler work within the city limits. Homeowners are not required to obtain a license, but must acquire plumbing homeowner’s permits and would be responsible for plumbing code compliance and obtaining any required inspections.
In order to acquire this license you must submit application, appropriate license fees and a $10,000 Compliance Bond. You will receive the City Plumbing Ordinance folder upon application (This folder is also available for purchase for $5.00).
