Why do I have to use "Town approved Inspectors"?

Town approved inspectors are required to take specific inspector training courses offered by the University of Rhode Island and pass a test as proof of competence. Additionally, they are required to carry liability insurance to protect both the property owners and the Town of North Kingstown. Download the list of inspectors (PDF), or we can mail you a copy. Please call the Water Department at 401-268-1521 to have one mailed to you.
