How Do You Know If A Permit Is Needed?
Every County and Township in Michigan has different rules and regulations on ponds. Some require a permit but most do not. We can look into permits for you or you can call your local offices. If they say you need a permit, make sure to ask them why? Ask what stipulations make you have a permit and ask where you can read the ordinance. We have been in the permit business a very long time and local governments are very quick to make you get a permit when in their rules it says nothing about them.
