O&M Operational Evaluation

Operational Evaluations must be submitted online by your O&M firm (inspection and pumping company), regardless of whether you submit a RSS Application online or on the paper form. You may verify the evaluation has been submitted electronically by going to, select Public Record Search, choose Pierce County under Search Region, then enter your property address or tax parcel number. If you cannot find the evaluation for your property, contact your O&M firm to request assistance.
