General Contractors - ePermitting
Submit Electrical, Mechanical, & Plumbing Permits Online
Benton County is now using the State of Oregon's ePermitting software program to process certain types of permits. However, submitting applications online is currently limited to licensed contractors.
Licensed contractors may submit Electrical, Mechanical & Plumbing permits online using ePermitting when:
- No portion of the property is in the floodplain, and
- No plan review is required.
Floodplain? To determine if the any portion of the property is in the floodplain, please check the FEMA Flood Map. If the property is in the floodplain, submit a site plan and a floodplain development permit, which can be found under "supporting documents" here.
The following permits must still be submitted to our office as described on our "Building Permit Process & Application Forms" page:
- Structural building permits
- Any permits that would require plan review
Using ePermitting licensed contractors can make online purchases of Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing Permits that do not require a plan review and when no portion of the property is in the floodplain.
