Water Availability Certificate


A Water Availability Certificate is generally required by Land Use Agencies prior to issuing a permit or specific land use application. upon request by the developer, Covington Water District (CWD) may issue a Certificate specifying what changes to the water system need to be made by the developer to serve the proposed project.

The District process to obtain a determination of Water Availability (WAL) is:
  • Download the application form (PDF) or request a hard copy.
  • Return the WAL to the District Engineer who will determine water availability.
  • Provide (fund) a hydraulic model if required to determine fire flow is available, when required by the local jurisdiction Fire Marshal.
  • Ask questions of the District Engineer if requirements are unclear.
  • An appeal may be made to the General Manager and subsequently the Board of Commissioners if an applicant has exhausted avenues with engineering staff.
