Critical aquifer recharge areas
Development Engineering reviews projects to prevent aquifer degradation and, when possible, enhance the quality of groundwater for drinking water or business purposes.
Developer certification optional review process
In August 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved an optional alternative process to the final engineering review of developer-constructed projects.
The "Developer Certification" process waives the county review of some final engineering construction plans. In its place, property owners and their teams of developers, design consultants and contractors certify their projects comply with the land use decision, county code and county standards, including provisions of the county's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for stormwater.

Engineering plan review
Development Engineering reviews the following types of projects:
- Construction plans for approved preliminary site plans.
- Construction plans for subdivisions and short plats with vested development approvals.
- Stormwater plans for drainage projects.
- Revisions to previously approved plans.
These reviews ensure that final engineering design and construction drawings not only meet county standards but comply with requirements of land use decisions (when applicable).

Flood plain inquiry and review
Development Engineering provides flood plain review to minimize public and private losses due to flooding, protect life and property, maintain public health and minimize effects on flood plains.
Geological hazard permit
Development Engineering reviews projects for compliance with regulations that limit development in areas with:
- Seismic hazards where there is potential danger from earthquakes, settlement or surface faults.
- Landslide potential due to a combination of slope, soil type and water.
- Steep slopes where there is not a mapped or designated landslide hazard but the slopes have a 40 percent or steeper incline.
Development Engineering reviews grading permits to ensure the activity will not harm the environment or damage buildings and other structures.

All development and redevelopment projects must comply with Clark County's stormwater code and manual.
A stormwater covenant for private developments ensures that privately owned stormwater facilities are inspected and maintained in compliance with the Clark County stormwater manual.
