A building permit is required for the installation of your pool. Depending on what type of pool you are installing, various approvals may be required.
If you are installing an in-ground pool, an approval from the Engineering Department is required before you can secure a building permit. You need to submit two (2) copies of a grading plan to their office, located at 25 Lakeside Avenue, West Orange, for approval BEFORE submitting your permit application package to the Building Department.
You must also provide the Building Department with a copy of your property survey (marked to indicate the location of the pool), the specifications on the pool, filter and ladder. Additionally, you must submit building, plumbing and electrical permit applications providing all descriptions of work. (Link to Requirements for Pool Installations.)Pool Installation Information
