Downloadable PDf map of proposed Cannabis Operations and Existing Public Water Systems
Proposed cannabis operations are unique from many other planning permit applications because they are limited to sites with existing development. It is important to note that new development that will require a public water system permit will be required to incorporate a centralized water treatment system when water quality standards cannot be met. When a local or state small water system permit will be required for new development, the water source must meet water quality standards without treatment. Point of use (POU) and Point of Entry (POE) devices may be considered to bring existing water systems that do not meet water quality standards into compliance.
