4-1.1000 PRELIMINARY GRADING PERMITS

9. A copy of the AZPDES Notice of Intent (NOI) Certificate (ADEQ from appr031c) or Approval to Discharge must be provided, as applicable.


5-2.100 PERMITS

The ROW Encroachment permit application is submitted to the One Stop Shop. Encroachment permit applications for public and private utility work will be submitted online at https://eservices.scottsdaleaz.gov/eservices/planreview through the digital plan submittal process e-application. In reference to projects proposed on Primary Roads, it is strongly encouraged that a provider submits project plans as far in advance of the project as is reasonably possible.

Upon receiving the application and appropriate drawings, details, etc., city staff will log the request into the city’s automated permit system and route the documents for technical review. This review includes, but is not limited to, checking for compliance with construction standards, approving alignments, verifying that the work is in the public rights-of-way or public utility easement, determining if other work is occurring at the same site or at the same time, verifying that all joint trench opportunities have been incorporated into the design, checking for conflicts, reviewing traffic impacts, and verifying that all city requirements have been met and incorporated into the plans.

Upon completion of the review, the permit application will be approved for permitting or returned to the applicant for further modifications. Permits are issued for a specific timeframe based on the estimated length of the project construction. If additions or corrections are required to the plans or permit application, the applicant will be notified and asked to make corrections and resubmit to the city.

A civil engineer registered in the State of Arizona must analyze new development that is determined by the Water Resources Department to have an impact on the city’s water system. The effects of average day flow, peak hour flow and max day plus fire flow are to be evaluated ensuring sufficient water supply is available to meet the needs of that development and that the proposed water system layout and sizing are adequate.

B. Submittals

Basis of Design Reports must be accepted by the Water Resources Department prior to the submittal of final plans to Plan Review Services unless otherwise stipulated by Current Planning.

1. Counter submittal - reports shall be separately submitted (apart from any Zoning, Planning Commission, or Development Review submittals) to the One Stop Shop, directed to the attention of the Water Resources Department.

2. Electronic submittal – reports may be electronically submitted following the digital plan submittal processes described on the city’s website at http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/bldgresources/planreview.

No review fees are charged for Basis of Design Reports.
