Electronic Plan Submittal Instructions

Effective February 1, 2023

The Division of Environmental Health is now accepting electronic plan submittals for food, mobile food, cross connection, land use, drinking water, radiation shielding, and pool facilities in addition to the traditional paper plan review process. Electronic plan submittal is not mandatory and is offered as a convenience.

Plans that are submitted electronically will be returned electronically to the contact person/firm listed on the application. We do not offer printing, flash drive transfer, electronic storage nor courier services of plans. It is the responsibility of the architect/draftsperson/owner/etc. to ensure that plans are submitted to all required agencies/parties.
