SEMSWA provides a Live Review Grading, Erosion and Sediment Control (GESC) permitting process.
This process applies to Single Family Residential Projects and other small projects (defined as Low Impact) that do not require a City of Centennial or Arapahoe County Land Use/Engineering review process. To see if your project can be permitted in this way please call to speak with a SEMSWA Land Development Engineer.
Live Review permitting is scheduled every Tuesday from 10:00 am until 12:00(noon). Please call and ask for a SEMSWA Land Development Engineer to set up a meeting time. These reviews take approximately 20-30 minutes.
The applicant must bring the following items to SEMSWA for the Live Review:
- Site Plan or Plot Plan showing the proposed project or improvements. If possible, this plan should include topographic information. This plan does not need to be prepared by an engineer.
- GESC Permit Application
- Review and Permit fee totaling $720.00 payable to SEMSWA.
During this time you will meet with a reviewer to discuss and define the appropriate construction best management practices (BMPs) for the proposed project. Once the necessary BMPs are determined and approved, the Low Impact GESC permit will be processed for approval.
In most cases, the applicant will leave SEMSWA with permit in hand and electronic copies will be routed to the City of Centennial and/or Arapahoe County.
