    Piers: Rules, Regulations and Permits

    In the summer of 2008, new legislation concerning the placement of piers on Wisconsin waterways went into effect.

    Piers have been a hot topic in the news since 2004 when the Wisconsin Legislature updated the regulations by setting size requirements for piers to be exempt from permitting. The new 2008 legislation expands the configuration options for piers to be exempt, provides greater flexibility in the number of boat slips allowed for commercial and multifamily lots, and creates a registration system to grandfather piers placed before 2004 that no longer meet today’s standards.

    Please visit the Wisconsin DNR website’s Piers section for complete information, application and documents.
