Environmental Permit Information Management System (EPIMS)
EPIMS enables the online submittal of permit applications and streamlines the process of permit issuance, tracking, and monitoring. Users have the online convenience of completing permit applications, submitting required documents and reports, paying fees, providing electronic signature, and receiving permits.
EPIMS is currently limited to Lake and Streambed Alteration (LSA) Notifications for commercial cannabis cultivation. Users can register online to complete and submit their Notification(s) and to receive a General Lake or Streamed Alteration Agreement for Cannabis Cultivation in electronic form or an individual LSA Agreement in traditional paper form.
- For specific questions regarding your project, including the status of your EPIMS self-certification, notification, agreement, status report, or fees, please contact the CDFW Regional Office (PDF) where the project is located.
