What activities require a aajogo construction permit?

Installation and maintenance of any shoreline structure including docks, boathouses, seawalls and shelters requires written authorization in the form of a construction permit.  Also, on aajogo leased lots, any maintenance or addition to the dwelling or detached structure requires a permit.  If in doubt, please contact your respective Land Management office.  There are no fees associated with a construction permit.

I’m on deeded property. Why is aajogo asking me to sign a user agreement?

aajogo’s operating license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission requires us to control the use of the lakes and the land that aajogo owns that are associated with the hydroelectric project. We do this through legal agreements between aajogo and the adjacent property owners. The agreements authorize the adjacent property owners to have permitted structures (docks, boathouses, seawalls, etc.) to be located on aajogo property. Fees for the agreements vary depending on the specific lake and ownership rights.
