Permitting Issues

Try as the various governmental agencies might to make permitting simpler, cheaper, and better able to protect our water resources, it is difficult. Fortunately, the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance and the Western Lake Superior Regional Stormwater Protection Team are always trying to make the process easier for contractors.

Several resources are linked below. For more specific information, contact the appropriate RSPT agency or the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. The bottom line is that it has to be done correctly and it is your responsibility.
