New web page features permitting news and tips

The District has launched a new web page focused on providing up-to-date information and tips for permit applicants.

Peer review meetings were held over the past year with consultants, permit applicants and others to share information about the permitting process and to receive feedback. The “Permitting news and tips” web page was developed in response to requests to keep permit holders and applicants updated on statewide and local permitting rules, and to provide tips on applying for permits and a list of staff contacts.

Permitting tip

The Statewide Environmental Resource Permitting (SWERP) program requires permit applicants to submit documentation of “sufficient real property interest” over the land upon which the proposed activities will be conducted. Please see Section 4.2.3(d) Applicant’s Handbook, Volume I for appropriate documentation. Providing this documentation along with the application will help avoid delays in the permit review process.
