State Pier Rules “Cleared Up”

From Wisconsin Real Estate Magazine: Ch. 30 Regulatory Reform (SB 326): Makes significant changes to Chapter 30 for the regulation of activities near navigable waterways, including (a) elimination of the pier registration requirement; (b) guaranteeing that all riparian owners have a right to place a pier; (c) grandfathering all existing piers that are not subject to DNR enforcement actions; (d) allowing new pier loading platforms to be up to 200 square feet, and (e) allowing unlimited maintenance and repair for nonconforming wet boathouses.

The above obviously has a big impact on Waupaca Chain O' Lakes real estate owners as many piers on our lakes did not meet previous state guidelines and as a result, required the property owner to apply for a permit.
