The Pelican River Watershed District is charged by state law to issue and monitor permits for land alteration activities meeting certain requirements to ensure our water resources are protected for generations to come. Through the permitting process, the PRWD works with property owners and local governments to protect our waters by maintaining or increasing water quality within the District. The ultimate goal is to permit and monitor the land use within the District to ensure the surrounding water resources can be enjoyed by all.

The District has adopted a permit program which requires property owners to obtain approval for the following plans:
Permits at PRWD fall in to six general categories, Shoreline Impact Zone Alteration, Impervious Surface, Subdivision/Planned Unit Development (PUD), Bluffs and steep slopes, Roads/Bridge/Culverts, and Groundwater de-watering. The graphic below may help explain project permit requirements.
In short, you need a permit if you intend to make any alterations in the shore impact zone, build or add on to your property, build a subdivision, planned unit development, parking lot or road, perform dewatering, erect a retaining wall or work on steep slopes within the district.
Some projects will require additional permits. Be sure to check with other agencies for their permit requirements before you begin.
