Environmental/Project Reviews

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has a formal process in which it manages incoming Project Solicitation of Views (SOVs) and Environmental Review (ER) requests. The agency utilizes a central project review routing system so that each project goes to necessary experts within the agency for comments. These comments then get compiled in a response back to you.

How to Submit:

SOVs and ER requests should be submitted by one of the following two methods.

If submitting your request by mail, please address accordingly:

Department of Water Resources
C/O Project Review
900 East Boulevard Ave
Bismarck, ND 58505

If submitting your request by email, please e-mail.

Timeline for Agency Response:

DWR’s goal is to turn reviews around as quickly as possible. However, a 30 day response time is requested. We also understand that in certain cases, your needs may be quicker and we will do our best to accommodate.
