Zone 7 requires an encroachment permit prior to activities or construction that will be conducted within the agency’s property, easements, or rights-of-way. These permits help protect the region’s water supply and flood control facilities, ensure the safety of nearby residents and passers-bys, and ensure that Zone 7’s facilities are restored to their original condition. Zone 7’s encroachment permit is separate from other city or public agency permits.
Zone 7 charges a permit processing fee of $50 for minor encroachments and $200 for major encroachments to cover administrative costs. Zone 7 may also charge applicants costs associated with project investigation, plan review and field inspections. Click here for and .
