Stormwater Certificate of Occupancy Requirements

To obtain clearance from the Stormwater Department, you must submit the Post-Construction Storm Water Site Management Acknowledgement and Inspection Form signed by the project owner.

The form details the two requirements of the post-construction program:

  1. Submission of a Post-Construction Maintenance Plan
    • The Post-Construction Maintenance Plan must be submitted and approved before a Certificate of Occupancy is issued;
    • Once approved, the Owner or Operator must file and record the Plan in the real property records of Fort Bend County.
  2.  Conducting a Post-Construction Inspection
  3. Submission of Notice of Termination (NOT) to stormwater@sugarlandtx.gov
