Site Review & Permitting

The Area Plan is responsible for issuing the Improvement Location Permit (ILP). EWSU contributes to the ILP permitting review process by:

  • Ensuring that public water and sewer is available to the property.
  • Ensuring water and sewer plans meet connections requirements.
