What to Expect from the Water Resource Portal

SRBC will continue to enhance this portal over time; however, it is important to note that the portal is not a complete clearinghouse, especially regarding some past and current pending applications. Applications not on the portal, and all other applications, are available in hard copy format at SRBC’s headquarters.

For those pending applications intended to be available on this portal, there are built-in delays from the time that SRBC receives electronic or paper applications until they are posted on the portal. Also, while you may have seen a legal notice in your local newspaper of a pending application, SRBC may not have yet received the application. We appreciate your patience in all these cases.

What You Will and Will Not Find in This Portal

Applications submitted electronically to SRBC are posted by SRBC on the portal generally within 10 days of staff considering them to be administratively complete. Applications submitted in hard-copy (paper) format to SRBC are scanned and posted by SRBC on the portal generally within 30 days of receiving them. All applications posted on the portal contain information submitted by project sponsors and the accuracy of that information may not yet have been validated by SRBC.
