Shoreline Protection-Do I need a permit?
We have had a number of phone calls asking whether residents need a permit to protect their shoreline from erosion. The State of Michigan has prepared a document of Frequently Asked Questions about Shore Protection During Great Lakes High Water. If you are looking to implement shoreline stabilization practices due to erosion occurring along the Great Lakes, a permit will most likely be needed from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.
