DBPR has made changes that no longer allow Seminole County to issue a Competency Card.

Irrigation Contractors can register/renew with Seminole County using a current Business Tax Receipt, Worker’s Compensation coverage or an exemption, and a General Liability Certificate. The certificate must list Seminole County 1101 E. 1st St. Sanford, FL 32771 as the certificate holder. 

An Irrigation Contractor may obtain a permit for an irrigation system that connects to a reclaimed meter issued or set by Seminole County or the City of Sanford. If on potable water, or not on reclaim from Seminole County of City of Sanford, then a licensed Plumbing Contractor will be required to obtain a separate permit for irrigation.
