State Plumbing Permit Guidelines Remain in Effect for Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The agency responsible for issuing plumbing licenses in Texas will remain operational through May 31, 2021. A recent executive order from Governor Greg Abbott delayed the permanent end of agency regulations until it can be re-addressed at the next Texas legislative session. 

Plumbers seeking a permit from Development Services or performing plumbing work in Corpus Christi are still required to have a valid and current Texas plumbing license. Development Services is continuing to plan for a local or regional regulatory program in the event of inaction during the next Texas legislative session.
