Depending on where your lot is, it is not that big of a deal to get a permit. I got one on a bayou in a few minutes online. Go to and click on New Single Family Dock at the bottom. This it the Florida EPA site. You will have to register but then you will fill out the questions and they will approve/disapprove then and there. They also clear it with the Corp of Engineers. Cant remember all the restrictions, has to be so far from property line, so many square feet etc but the web site has it all. I got a permit online from both Florida EPA and the Corp on this site. It is in Walton County and you do not need a county permit unless you put electricity or a roof on something. You need to check your county website, think Okaloosa makes you get one ($). About 2 weeks after I got the permit, I was out there and a guy from the Florida EPA actually came out to check on me. Hadnt started yet so wasn't a problem. As far as the actual construction, haven't started that yet, may hire the pilings out.

Forgot the web site > http://www.dep.state.fl.us/secretary...rmit_water.htm

Also remember about the sea grass. The DEP will send someone out to inspect the area where the dock will be placed. It's all in the permitting stage.

Thanks, sailor50. We will do the same process.

Ocean master, while I love sea grass, I am thrilled there is none in front of this house!

Grass is good. Good for marine life. The problem we have in this area is algae bloom which shades the water and grass cannot grow. So, piers and roofs over boat lifts contribute to the problem because they block sunlight.

BTW we always sunk pilings small diameter end first.
