After plans have been reviewed and approved, a submittal of two (2) additional sets will be required for stamping. Once all plans have been stamped, you will be required to submit the two (2) sets of plans to the applicable jurisdiction’s Planning/Building Department to obtain permits for construction. (The total number of sets submitted to DEH is three, which includes: DEH Copy, Job Copy, and Planning/Building Department Copy. DEH does NOT issue permits for construction.)
NOTE: Separate Plan Check Applications and fees will be required per body of water. All applicable fees must be paid in full prior to any services provided by DEH (inspections, plan review, approvals, etc.) Additional fees and requirements may apply. All plans are reviewed in the order received. DEH has 30-calendar days to review all submittals (new and/or revisions).
For applicable Plan Check fees, see DEH Fee Schedule. Please be sure to only review the Plan Check portion of the fee schedule, as other fees listed may NOT apply to plan review and construction.
We will not begin any work until all the items noted above and payment are received.
