The following steps are required to obtain Final Grade Approval:
- The developer, builder, contractor or owner submits the certified As-built Plan (Lot Grading Certificate) to Drainage Planning
- A lot grading inspector will conduct a visual inspection within 5 working days (depending on workload and weather conditions) to ensure that the lot is graded in accordance with the approved Lot Grading Plan (Surface Drainage Plan)
- A Lot Grading Inspection Report will be sent to the developer, builder, contractor or owner, indicating that the lot grading has received Final Grade Approval or that deficiencies exist
- The developer, contractor, builder or owner must correct any deficiency and notify Drainage Planning for a re-inspection within 60 days. Final Grade Approval will be issued with the As-built Plan stamped, signed and dated by lot grading inspector once lot grading meets the requirements
Note: Final Grade Approval will not be given until Drainage Planning receives the original As-built Plan and determines that all fees have been paid.
