Laws & Regulations

Understand the laws & regulations that affect your waterway

Environmental permits and regulations are designed to ensure that residents are managing waterways in a way that does not impact our shared water resources. Water is regulated at many levels, starting with the federal government and tribal governments, then at the state level, and finally at the level of our local counties and cities. Different permits and regulations that apply depend on your project and location. It is important to be informed on existing regulations and what steps you need to take before beginning a project on your waterway.
