Permit Fees


HCWA Engineering Division charges a permit fee for the plan review and subsequent site inspection of water distribution, watershed protection, and sanitary sewerage systems.   These services are for newly installed water lines, sanitary sewer lines, force mains, lift stations, and appurtenances for new developments.       

To obtain plan review, inspection of proposed infrastructure, or related Engineering services of the HCWA, local developers must pay the appropriate permit fees, which vary according to the size and scope of the development.

Approved plans and a pre-construction conference with HCWA's Engineering staff are required prior to the installation of any proposed lines that are to be dedicated to the HCWA system.

HCWA requires one copy of plans for original submittal.  Four copies are typically required for final approval. Projects within other jurisdictions, that require services from HCWA, are required to submit plans separately to HCWA.
