The time frame for review varies – if the project is less than 4500 gallons per day, or 15 units, the Executive Director is authorized to sign those without Board approval.  These are usually returned within 7 days.   If the project exceeds those limits, the PARSA Board of Commissioners will approve it at their monthly meeting (1st Thursday of the month).  This may take up to 45 days. PARSA will return the original WQM-003, with the appropriate signatures and authorizing resolution; all other paperwork supplied will be retained for the file.
