Executive Officer Delegated Permits

Revisions to the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (Board) regulations (California Code of Regulations, Division 1, Title 23) in February of 2012 included delegated authority to the Executive Officer (EO) to approve certain types of proposed projects that do not significantly affect any element of the State Plan of Flood Control or other adopted plan of flood control. These types of proposed projects no longer need to be considered by the Board as evidentiary hearings at the Board’s regularly scheduled monthly meetings which are typically held on the fourth Friday of the month.

Encroachment permit applications that are delegated to the EO for approval are received and reviewed the same as any other application. One exception is that the EO delegated applications are posted on the Board’s website for a minimum of thirty (30) calendar days following receipt of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) approval letter for the project. During this posting period, the public may provide the EO with flood control related comments on the proposed action. The EO will consider all comments, but is not required to respond to them or change the proposed action. Proposed projects that are found to be in compliance with all Board regulations will be approved by the EO and a permit will be issued.
