6) Grassed areas shall be seeded with straw as soon as possible after excavation.

Permittee must submit detailed as-built plans as soon as construction is complete.
Our review does not include locations of other underground utilities other than those owned by the city.
There may be other utilities in conflict with the proposed alignment. Also, our review is based on the best available information and is not represented as all inclusive of city owned utilities or those owned by others. Permittee may be responsible for any damage that occurs. Please notify the city as soon as any damage is known so that proper repair can be coordinated.
The proposed utility alignments are tentatively approved pending Permittee's representatives taking the actions and precautions as listed in this permit.
