Fast Track Permitting

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) begins working with state and local economic development officials on the front end of a project to handle the pre-application and application process to ensure permitting is not a major sticking point for a project getting off the ground. Provided there are no unforeseen environmental issues, ADEM can help make the permitting process as quick and easy as possible.

  • Complex air and water permits are usually issued by ADEM within 60 days.
  • Construction storm water permits are regularly issued within two or three days.
  • PSD (prevention of significant deterioration) analyses for major air permits can be completed in 120 days in most cases.
