Question 11

We are planning to build a pump house within our existing municipal sewage plant facility. Will a design release be required prior to construction?

Answer

That depends - if the pump house is owned and used by a utility and will never be occupied or used by the public and will not normally be occupied or used by a person acting as an employee of another, the building is exempt from the design release requirement - reference page 25 of  675 IAC 12-6-4

Several other Class 1 structures are also exempt from the design release requirement because of their use or their small size.

To determine if your project may be exempt from filing with the State, please send an email to planreview@dhs.in.gov.
