Plan of Development

UltraSystems prepares Plans of Development (PODs) to help its clients meet Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requirements.

The POD includes a detailed project description, such as:

  • Purpose and need;
  • Facility descriptions;
  • Design and operation;
  • Permit requirements, schedules, and financial and technical capabilities of the applicant; Detailed description of facility construction, related facilities and systems;
  • Operations and maintenance of the system;
  • Environmental considerations; and
  • Maps and engineering drawings.

UltraSystems works in close coordination with the client’s engineering staff to prepare and submit the POD for BLM approval.
