The policies and procedures relating to plan review requirements are specific to each individual other political subdivision (OPS).

As a first step, contact the City of Austin's Watershed Protection and Development Review Department (974-2747) to verify whether or not a City of Austin Building Permit is required.

If a permit is required from the City, the process will be identical to the one described for all other City of Austin customers. If a City of Austin Building Permit is not required, contact a representative from your individual OPS for an explanation of its applicable requirements. In any case, the proposed discharge of any industrial waste must include the provision of adequate pretreatment and compliance with all applicable effluent limitations.

Feel free to contact Pretreatment Program staff if you have any questions. The entire purpose of the plan review process is to ensure compliance from the very start. Those customers that bypass this process run the risk of project delays, expensive retrofits or unanticipated cost overruns.
