After a suitable site has been located, proper permits must be obtained. Permits for borehole strainmeters can be complicated, costly and require extensive time. Some permits will require lengthy processes like public notification and input. There are many permutations of what is needed depending on location with political units such as counties, cities and states. Typical permits may include:
- Land Use Permit - Always required
- Drilling Permit - Always required and typically obtained by a licensed driller
- Construction Permit - depends on location and local regulations
- Environmental Impact Statement - highly depends on land owner (Federal) and relative location to cultural resources
- Special Environmental - For example any possible disturbance of the water table in the Lake Tahoe water district requires an extensive permit with public input.
