Common federal permits include wetland & stream Army Corps permits or FEMA Flood Study approval. Common Georgia state level approvals include GADOT driveway & road permits, Environmental Protection Department (EDP) stream buffer variance permits, EPD notice of intent to meet water quality requirements during construction, Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) Erosion Control approval, and on occasion the state fire marshal approval. Special permits include permission to construct within utility easements/property such as Georgia Power and additional permits maybe required to encroach on private right-of-ways such as railroad entities. Simultaneously, while obtaining federal and state approvals, the construction plans are typically submitted to the local jurisdiction to ensure compliance with zoning regulations, local stormwater and utility connection requirements.
Eberly & Associates engineers work with property owners and developers to create construction documents that address both the constructability of the project and the environmental concerns of the federal, state, and local jurisdictions having authority. Our professionals work closely with the jurisdictional review teams to assist our clients in securing site permits so projects can move forward into construction.
