At Waters Edge Dock Talk
 
Docks and watercraft lifts are commonly used access structures on Lake Miltona. If you own waterfront property, a temporary structure that provides access to a lake or river is preferred to a permanent structure. Permanent structures are more likely to sustain ice damage, and a snow-covered structure over the ice poses a hazard to recreational vehicle users.
 
No permit is needed to install, construct, or reconstruct your dock on shoreline property you own if you comply with the following:
  1. A dock is a narrow platform or structure extending toward the water from the shoreline. A dock may provide access to moored watercraft or deeper water for swimming, fishing, and other recreation.
  2. The structure, other than a watercraft lift or watercraft canopy, is not more than 8 feet wide and is not combined with other similar structures so as to create a larger structure.
  3. The dock is no longer than needed to achieve its intended use, including reaching navigable water depth.
  4. The structure is not a hazard to navigation, health, or safety.
  5. The structure will allow the free flow of water beneath it.
  6. The structure is not used or intended as a marina.
  7. The structure is consistent with the guidelines of the local unit of government.
  8. Docks placed on rock-filled cribs are located only on waters where the bed is predominantly bedrock.
