City Standards and Specifications

Thinking about doing construction in Moses Lake?  If your project involves:

  • Work in city right-of-way
  • Work in municipal easements
  • Connecting to an existing City utility or storm drainage system
  • Extension of private water or sewer mains on private property

your project is subject to City construction standards and specifications.  

Construction within the city must comply with the 2020 Edition of the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Standard Specifications for Road, Bridge, and Municipal Construction as revised by these City of Moses Lake Community Street and Utility Standards.
