(Bold items are required for a complete application; other items will be required prior to permit issuance. For additional information see the Program Rules, Section 4.)
All bold item documents listed above must be completed and submitted in order for the plans review process to begin. When plans are submitted for review, the following steps will be taken:
- All application documents will be stamped with the date when submitted, and the plans will be assigned to the Plans review staff for review and approval. A completeness review will be done within 1 week of submittal. Following the completeness review, a letter will be sent to the applicant acknowledging the receipt of a complete application; or, if the application packet is incomplete, the letter will indicate the missing items.
- Once the application is complete, the Plan review staff will then have 30 days to complete a technical review of the plans. If deficiencies are found or clarifications are needed an email will be sent to the applicant.
- Item 2 will be repeated until plans are approved. (See 4.B.5 of the Program Rules.)
- Approved plans will be stamped and dated electronically, and a pdf set will be returned to the applicant. Applicant/contractor will be responsible to print set to be kept onsite.
Once the SWPPP (including the site plan) is approved, a Pre‐construction meeting will be scheduled for all construction sites. (See 4.B.6 of the Program Rules.) The Pre‐construction meeting is a good time to get any remaining signatures that are needed, including that of the on‐site Level 1 inspector. The primary contractor, the SWPPP designer and the property owner should attend the meeting. Any outstanding fees (e.g. application fee, retention/detention facility fees) may be collected at the meeting. The permit will be issued once all outstanding items are received.
