Barge Fleeting Permit
A Barge Fleeting Permit is required to conduct barge mooring on any public waters under the jurisdiction of the DNR; no permit is required for barges which temporarily occupy waters at a loading or off-loading facility. Barge Fleeting Permits are leases issued to allow barges to occupy a specific area of sovereign, state-owned river bed for periods of time extending more than 24 hours. Permits are required to regulate use of public waters and protect the natural resource.
