Your Permit


CRWD rules require stormwater management permits for construction projects disturbing more than one acre of land within the watershed. As most of the District is developed, stormwater management is critical to improving water quality. Additional permit requirements may also apply, depending on site conditions.

Permit applications are reviewed by District staff and presented to the Board of Managers at monthly meeting, typically held the first and third Wednesday of every month. CRWD staff then will recommend action to the Managers, who approve or deny the application based on District rules.
