MDEQ/USACE Joint Permit Application

  • 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.

    The JPA should be submitted through MiWaters, our new online permitting site. When submitting through MiWaters, the entire JPA, and all required documents, must be uploaded as attachments to the MiWaters online submittal. Online payment of permit application fees is also submitted through MiWaters.

    The status of applications processed by the DEQ/WRD, as well as current Public Notice and Hearing Notices, can be searched and viewed in MiWaters.
