Environmental Compliance Plan Reviews


All facilities going through the Plan Review process will start with Central San’s Permit Counter for full permit requirements and fees.  Click here to access the Permit Counter page.

Central San’s Permit Counter will forward the plans to the Environmental Compliance section if required.  The Environmental Compliance Section conducts plan reviews of businesses that may potentially discharge pollutants into our sanitary sewer system.  The Environmental Compliance plan review will determine appropriate pretreatment devices and ensure wastewater is discharged in a manner that prevents or removes pollutants.
