Commercial cannabis cultivators encouraged to submit permit paperwork online

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is recommending commercial cannabis cultivators submit notification of their proposed activities through the Environmental Permit Information Management System portal, or EPIMS.

On EPIMS, applicants can apply for a lake and streambed alteration agreement or written verification that one is not needed, calculate fees, track progress and communicate with staff.

CDFW is incorporating best practices to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19.

In order to minimize disruption to those seeking a state license from the California Department of Food and Agriculture, CDFW is encouraging commercial cannabis cultivators to submit paperwork through its EPIMS portal. Submitting hard copy paperwork could result in a delay of a proposed project.
