Any construction project or training on Fort Hood that includes excavation or penetration of the surface of the ground or any impoundment or use of surface waters, must first obtain an approved FH Form 200-10 for Land Excavation and Water Use, most commonly referred to as a Dig Permit.
Military Training Dig Permits
Permits for digging or staking in a Training Area or on a Range must be submitted via email to Range Operations - ITAM. For more information, stop by the Fort Hood ITAM Office at Range Operations, Bldg. 56000, Rm. 185, off Murphy Rd.; contact the ITAM GIS Specialist at 254-288-4650; or visit the Fort Hood ITAM webpage.
Completing the Dig Permit
Since requesting a Dig Permit indicates that the project is about to break ground, all other project required permits, such as a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), Air and Waste Permits, or other required authorizations (e.g. DA Form 4283) must be obtained prior to submitting a dig permit and requesting utility locates.
You can obtain the FH Form 200-10 Dig Permit here. Save this form to your computer, fill out the front page completely, and email it to DPW Env Dig Permits. If additional information is required, you will receive an email with the requested information. Once all required information for the request is provided, you will receive an email confirming the submittal of your request and the assigned control number. If you do not receive a confirmation email or a request for more information within 3 business days, call 254-287-4507 or 254-287-3220.
