cannabis-related operations on your property
In order to conduct cannabis-related operations on your property, it is necessary to obtain a series of permits and licenses. Please review the RMA-Planning Department’s website to learn more. The Environmental Health Bureau is tasked with reviewing discretionary permit applications, cannabis business permit applications and construction permit applications for compliance with a multitude of regulations and standards.
EHB has prepared a general list of information that will be considered during review of the aforementioned applications, which you can find here: EHB Oversight of Cannabis Operations
In general, cannabis operations are proposed in areas that have long been associated with agriculture uses. Subsequently, groundwater extracted from onsite wells often exceeds the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for nitrate. A water system is required to incorporate treatment when any primary drinking water standard(s) exceeds the MCL, including nitrate. Centralized treatment (installed at the source, prior to distribution to the water system connections) is mandatory for new water systems. However, the high costs of installing and operating a treatment system, as well as treatment system wastewater management and disposal, can make it difficult for water system applicants to demonstrate that necessary Technical, Managerial and Financial (TMF) capacity is available to support the system if nitrate contamination is an issue. Please visit the EHB’s Public Water System website to learn more about requirements for new public water systems and our effort to encourage consolidation of individual water systems to serve a regional area.
