  • The MDEQ/USACE "Joint Permit Application" (JPA) package covers permit requirements pursuant to state and federal rules and regulations for construction activities where the land meets the water including wetlands, often referred to as the land/water interface. It is intended to prevent duplication of state and federal regulations. The application covers activities on or for: Wetlands, Floodplains, Marinas, Dams, Inland Lakes and Streams, Great Lakes Bottom Lands, Critical Dunes, and High Risk Erosion Areas.
