MPARS supports five permit types:
Water Appropriation, Public Waters Work, Dam Safety, Aquatic Plant Management and Invasive Aquatic Plant Management

Due to the ongoing drought and related technical analysis needed for well-interferences, water appropriation, pre-construction well assessments and other permit review times may be longer than normal. We appreciate your patience.

MPARS features:

  • View information and request changes to your existing permits
  • Apply for new DNR permits (individual permits and general permit authorizations)
  • Request a Preliminary Well Construction Assessment
  • Begin the Joint Notification process for multi-agency permitting for work in waters and wetlands
  • Generate a report of your application which you can email/mail to other permitting agencies
  • Submit annual Water Use Reports
  • Pay permit-related fees online via connection to a secure banking system
  • Communicate with DNR staff
