If a pump station connects directly to existing force main, a Flow Acceptance Letter is required. If gravity flow is less than 2,000 gpd, a Flow Acceptance Letter is not required.
If a Flow Acceptance Letter is required, then a Certificate to Construct (CTC) (PDF) and subsequently a Certificate to Operate (CTO) are required.
CTO - If the project requires a CTC, then a CTO is required.
Consultant submits construction plans to Department of Development and Permits (DD&P), Mr. Mark Curry, Development and Engineering, 306 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322.
HRSD review and approval of construction plans is separate from any flow acceptance requirements and required whenever there is a proposed connection to an HRSD line or construction requires a contractor to work near an HRSD main (crossings and working in close proximity).
DEQ Approval – DEQ will issue the CTC and CTO upon application. As of 2008, DEQ no longer performs a separate review of the engineering plans.
