MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Shoreline owners wanting to groom their Great Lakes waterfront property are no longer be required to get a permit from the state, but they still need one from the federal government.

The U-S Army Corps of Engineers says it will continue to require that waterfront owners get a permit for sand leveling or cleaning vegetation and debris on the beach between the normal high-water mark and the current water level.  The Corps says property owners who have obtained authorization for sand leveling and grooming under a previous regional permit don’t have to apply again. But those who need a permit can apply for one at the Detroit district office.

Earlier this month, Governor Snyder signed into law a bill eliminating the need for a permit from the state for many beach grooming activities.  The bill was authored by State Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba.
