Nevada Navigable Waters Permit Terms Amended to 10-Years
The Nevada Division of State Lands (NDSL) is pleased to announce an amendment to the current process associated with permits issued for the recreational use of state owned submerged land.
Beginning June 2, 2014, NDSL will offer applicants and permittees a single permit term of TEN (10) years for permits issued for recreational uses of state owned submerged land. The intent is to authorize buoys, piers, breakwaters and associated recreational structures on the same permit for the same ten year term. Since 1993, NDSL has typically issued permits for buoys for FIVE (5) years and permits for piers and breakwaters for TWENTY (20) years.
By including all of these structures on one permit, NDSL’s goal is to improve customer service by providing permittees the option of receiving one annual invoice for all structures, reducing the frequency for which applications need to be submitted to renew a permit and the convenience of having one permit for the use of state owned submerged land.
During the application review process, applicants will be given the option to combine their structures into one, single permit if the situation warrants. Applicants must submit the current annual fee associated with the structure(s) they wish to include on the single permit and an appropriate insurance certificate.
