Bulrushes
 
Aquatic plants such as cattails, bulrushes (some people call them lake reeds), water lilies, and other aquatic vegetation are important because they reduce wave action (reducing the threat of shoreline erosion), provide fish and wildlife habitat, buffer shorelines from pollutants, and provide other environmental benefits. Preserving all aquatic plants is ideal for the protection of the lake both now, and in the future.
 
Channel You may mechanically maintain a 15 foot wide channel through floating-leaf vegetation extending to open water without a permit. Any greater removal will require a permit.

If you must remove bulrushes, and have received the required permit when applicable, please remove as few as possible. Preserving existing bulrushes will certainly be easier than it would be to re-establish them in the future for fish habitat and water-filtering.
 
How do I know if my project requires a permit?
Answer a series of questions to determine if you need a permit.
 
Online Permit Application
A permit application is available online for your convenience. A list of required enclosures and fees are included.
