All connections to the existing drainage facilities will be made by the customer, developer or the customer’s contractor under the direction of CVWD. All associated costs of the replacements and connections to existing CVWD facilities shall be at the sole expense of the customer. CVWD requires a permanent encroachment permit for the operation and maintenance of the tie-in point between the private and CVWD drainage facilities. Concurrently, the customer’s contractor will be required to apply for and obtain a construction encroachment permit from CVWD to install the tie-in point.
If the customer is connecting to a federally owned drainage facility (e.g., Avenue 64 Evacuation Channel) then the customer will be required to obtain a right-of-use permit (ROU) from the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR). Once the USBR issues the ROU, the customer’s contractor will be required to apply for and obtain a construction encroachment permit from CVWD to install the tie-in point.
