  NDEP — Subdivision Review Back BWPC Home Page   
2005 Legislative Session:

During the 2005 Legislative Session, Senate Bill 395 transferred responsibility for operation of certain programs from the Health Division to the Division of Environmental Protection

These changes are intended to combine and streamline both the Drinking Water and Waste Water approval process and apply to all subdivision submittals not including those made to Clark and Washoe Counties. BWPC staff is the lead reviewing agency for both the wastewater and drinking water subdivision projects.

The Bureau of Safe Drinking Water will continue to evaluate appropriate aspects of subdivisions, such as the capability of the Public Water System to serve the proposed development. These activities, however, are internal to NDEP and transparent to the public as projects are submitted for review and approval.

Stamp and Signature Requirements:

In accordance Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 625.6102 and pursuant to NRS 625.5653, all surveying maps and records, and all engineering plans, specifications, reports or other documents that are submitted to obtain permits, are released for construction or are issued as formal or final documents to clients, public authorities or third parties must bear:

  • The signature of the licensee;
  • The stamp or seal of the licensee;
  • The date of signing; and
  • The expiration date of the license of the licensee
Nevada Division of Environmental Signatures:
