A permit for an On-Water Facility or dock provides lakeside property owners the opportunity to construct and maintain private facilities over the reservoir bed. Lake Limestone is a water supply reservoir and water levels will fluctuate; therefore, an approved permit does not guarantee access to water for recreation.

A Residential-Use Water Permit allows lakeside property owners to install water pumps and pipelines to access untreated water supply from the reservoir for irrigation purposes. The permit allows for up to 5,000 gallons of water to be drawn on a monthly basis.
Lake Limestone is a water supply reservoir and water levels will fluctuate; therefore, permittee may need to modify pumping equipment in order to maintain continuous access to the water supply. Nevertheless, access is not guaranteed in all circumstances.

The forms, fees, and proposed facility sketches (if requesting a new on-water facility) may also be delivered in person to the Lake Office during regular business hours. The staff at our Lake Office will be happy to assist you in calculating any of the required fees or answering questions regarding the application process. Construction may not begin until the permit has been approved and returned to you. To contact the Lake Office, please call 903-529-2141.
