Fees & Escrow Information

Permit fees have a $10 non-returnable administrative fee plus a base fee between $750-$10,000 depending on size of project. Fees are not required for public entities.

Note: we have additional fees for Floodplain Impact, Ditch & Stream Crossings, and Wetland reviews.

Any unused portion of the Review and Inspection fee is returned to you (no interest). You will be charged additional fees if your application requires additional staff time.

Go here for Permit Application Forms

Escrow fees ensure the project gets done according to the Approved Permit plan. Before claiming your escrow, all criteria must be met from our permit to you. This will help increase your Return amount by reducing our staff time spent on site visits. Once your project is fully completed, fill out this form requesting return of your escrow funds.

Remember to Add the Administrative Fee of $10!
