Permit Process Schematics

ORIA's permit process schematics illustrate the application, review, and appeal phases for specific permits. They show you step-by-step how various permit processes work.

Developed by ORIA and its partner agencies, the schematics show the responsibilities of the applicant, the regulatory agencies, and the public. They can help you chart out and plan for the permitting process. Subjects include: Air, Waste and Toxics, Water Quality, Water Resources, Work in or Near Water, General, and we are adding more all the time!

ORIA's schematics help you:

  • Understand how applicants and agencies work together.
  • Visualize each step of the process.
  • Understand at which stage public comment might be required.
