Permits are required for most work done within the Cormorant Lakes Watershed District. Please consult with any District Manager or Inspector for details.


No Action, works, or use requiring a permit shall be commenced before the issuance of the permit, except for emergency repairs necessitated by storms, floods, or water, electrical, and sewage system failures. The District should be notified of such repairs as soon as practicable.


There is no charge for the permit. While some basic permits can be issued on the same day, it's best to allow for a full 14-day permit review. There can be significant fines, legal issues & costs, shoreline restoration, or other expenses for doing work within the District without first obtaining a permit.


The permit form is available by selecting it (listed below). The form must be printed and submitted to a manager for review. The form must be signed and dated by the applicant, and all identifying fields must be completed. Permits can be denied if improperly filled out or incomplete. Permit applications are available with any of the District Managers.
