Senate Bill 714 amends the natural resources and environmental protection act (parts 323 and 325) to eliminate the need for a permit for the construction of temporary erosion control structures along the Great Lakes when the lakes are higher than a certain nominal levels above sea level. Additionally, the bill allows 78 weeks for property owners to file an application for a permit for a permanent control structure to replace the temporary control structure. Removal of the temporary structure does not require a permit, and if the permanent control structure is denied, the owner has 90 days to remove the temporary control structure.Learn more at legislature.mi.gov
