Processing Permit Applications
General timeline for KDWP processing action permit applications
Upon receipt of a complete application, an evaluation will be made of the proposed project's probable effects to threatened or endangered species. In most cases, it will be necessary to place special conditions on a permit whereby the permit holder will be required to incorporate specific mitigation measures designed to significantly reduce or eliminate a project's adverse impacts to the protected species. All permits issued will carry general conditions to inform the action sponsor what is and is not covered by the permit.
As a general rule, permit applications will be completely processed within 30 days of receipt by the Environmental Services Section. Applicants may not begin any work that requires a permit before issuance of same.
