The Details

What you need

This application form is for Water Management permittees who do not anticipate needing more water during the upcoming 20-year permit period than they are currently permitted for in their Water Management Act permit. Permittees who anticipate needing additional water will need to file an application for a new Water Management permit.

Permittees who do not need to increase their authorized withdrawal volume now, but expect to need more water in five or ten years can either a) apply for a new 20-year permit for the anticipated additional withdrawal volumes now, or b) can apply for a permit renewal for the current authorized withdrawal volume now, and then file a full application for a new permit in five or ten years as their water withdrawals approach the authorized permit limit.
