Environmental Permit Schematics

Visualize the Permit Process

Developed in collaboration by ORIA and partner regulatory agencies, the permit process schematics illustrate the application, review, and appeal phases for specific permits. They show the responsibilities of the applicant, the regulatory agency, and the public, and they can help you chart and plan for the permitting process.

Permit schematics also help you understand how applicants and agencies work together, visualize each step of the process, and understand at which stage public comment might be required.
