Dane County Planning and Development enforces shoreland, wetland, and floodplain zoning for all rural areas of the County. If you are planning a new house, driveway, structure, breaking out new land to crop, cleaning out fencelines, digging or grading with heavy equipment in a field, ditch, or elsewhere, please refer to the information sheet linked below regarding erosion control and stormwater management permits.
It is beneficial to determine whether an activity requires a permit before the work takes place. Once you begin the work and a permit is required, fees are doubled.
