The Engineering Department maintains the Engineering Standards for the City. The “City of Hood River Engineering Standards” (Standards) were adopted in March 2005 and are updated from time to time as needed. The purpose of the Standards is to provide design standards for both public and private improvements, including grading and erosion control, under the jurisdiction of the City of Hood River. The Standards apply to proposed work within the City and the Urban Growth Area (UGA) and to extensions of City-owned utilities outside the City limits and the UGA.
Printed copies of the Standards are available at a cost of $20 at the Engineering Department or are available online here. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that the latest revision of the Standards is used. Please verify with the Engineering Department before beginning a new project.
