What type of fill is permitted to use at my construction site?

A Stormwater Permit* must be obtained from Community Development before placement of any type of fill.

White beach quality sand is accepted in all areas of the city, however the placement of clay and dark colored fill is restricted in certain areas. A sample of the proposed fill material must be submitted to the Community Development office prior to issuance of a Stormwater Permit.

*The Stormwater Permit is part of the Site Permit application on the Permit Portal
