Permitting Takes Time

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”

-Benjamin Franklin


Front Range Environment has applied for numerous permits with the EPA, DNR,
Cities, Counties and States.   Whether obtaining permits for a rehab,
remediation, native prairie burn or construction, inevitably the process of
documenting and obtaining the permit takes longer than anticipated.

Here are some basic tips from our experience in post construction stormwater
system management to assist you through the permitting process:

  • Always communicate to the client on the front-end that permitting will most
    likely take longer than anticipated
  • Keep a separate permitting file
  • Maintain records of date, person, contact info and subject of all
    communications
  • Apply for controlled burns at least 7 months before burn date
  • From beginning to-end the average EPA/Army Corp permitting takes 12 months
  • Keep your client up-to-date with every submittal, approval and hic-cup
