The City of Austin has several different departments that perform inspections. These include the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services (HHS), the Austin Fire Department (AFD), the Development Services Department (DSD), and the Code Compliance Department (CODE). Additionally, the Austin Water Utility's (AWU) On-Site Sewage Facilities (OSSF) Program addresses customer needs for wastewater service not involving a connection to the City's wastewater system and Watershed Protection's (WPD) Watershed Engineering’s mission protects lives and property from the devastating effects of flooding.

These inspections directly link to these department services.
