Instructions for Developer Document Submissions During COVID-19

Due to unforeseen circumstances associated with the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in furtherance of directions of Governor Sisolak and the Declaration of Emergency issued by Washoe County on March 16, 2020, Truckee Meadows Water Authority is implementing temporary procedures with respect to the submission of surveying maps and records, engineering plans, specifications, reports or other documents requiring the use of a signature or stamp of a professional engineer or professional land surveyor in order to protect our staff and members of the public.  Until further notice, TMWA will not be accepting paper documents associated with new applications or resubmittals for new or modified services in person at TMWA’s corporate office at 1355 Capital Blvd. TMWA will endeavor to handle these submittals and projects electronically. Payments will be accepted via mail or drop box. Regarding “original” or “wet stamped” documents, the licensee with responsible charge of the work contained in the document shall comply with the following requirements for purposes of TMWA confirming compliance with the provisions of NAC 625.610:

  1. The licensee shall submit the document to TMWA electronically in such format required by TMWA;
  2. The licensee shall sign, stamp and/or seal the document in accordance with NAC 625.610 and provide electronic confirmation of such signature, stamp or seal to TMWA in such format required by TMWA; and
  3. The licensee shall retain the original signed, stamped or sealed document and shall submit such original to TMWA upon the earlier of: i) TMWA’s request or ii) termination of the temporary procedures described herein.

TMWA will have staff available to answer questions via telephone and email. Please contact your Project Coordinator or engr@tmwa.comfor further information.

Preconstruction meetings will be held via teleconference with a modified tailgate meeting in the field with the inspector. Inspections will continue with extra, best-practice precautions.  We appreciate your understanding as we take these measures to protect our staff and members of the public; however, we believe these decisions are imperative to do our part to minimize further spread of COVID-19.
