Post Construction Stormwater Quality Permit

To obtain clearance from the Stormwater Department, you must apply for a Post Construction Stormwater Quality Permit on the City's CSS page

The two requirements of an initial application of the Post Construction Stormwater Quality Permit are:

  1. Submission of a Post-Construction Maintenance Plan
    • The Post-Construction Maintenance Plan must be submitted and approved before a Certificate of Occupancy is issued;
    • Once approved, the Owner or Operator must file and record the Plan in the real property records of Fort Bend County.
  2.  Conducting a Post-Construction Inspection
  3. Submission of Notice of Termination (NOT) 

After issuance of the Post Construction Stormwater Quality Permit,  the responsible party must renew the permit annually by submitting an inspection report and, on the fifth year, an inspection report stamped by a licensed engineer.
