Project Application Information

Projects originate with sponsoring public entities and come to the WWDC through applications. Applications for Level I and II projects must be received by March 1st and Level III construction projects by September 1st.

Water development projects are defined with three levels. Project planning is performed in Levels I and II, and project construction is performed in Level III. Levels I and II are 100% State funded.

  • Level I studies carry out necessary reconnaissance work
  • Level II studies determine a project's feasibility
  • Level III studies include project design, permitting, land acquisition, construction and construction engineering

Applications can be downloaded from this page or WWDC now offers applicants an online version.
