Can I renew an expired approval certificate?
An expired Interim Approval to Construct, Approval to Construct or Approval to Decommission certificate can be renewed once within an 18 month period from its date of expiration provided the original design is unchanged.

A Request for Approval to Construct Water and/or Wastewater Treatment/Reuse Facilities application must be submitted with a check for the renewal fee. The renewal fee is equal to 1/2 the initial fee amount originally charged for the project. The renewal grants a 1 year extension from the date the certificate is renewed.

If an Interim Approval to Construct, Approval to Construct or Approval to Decommission certificate has expired and cannot be renewed because it was previously renewed or the design of the project has changed, then a new project approval must be obtained. For more information, please call 602-372-2861.
