Instructions for Permit Application 
Prior to the installation or construction of any activity on or affecting project lands, a permit application must be submitted to Ameren Missouri. Any activity (except boat docks) located lakeward of elevation 658.5 feet or in a wetland, also requires approval from the Corps of Engineers. Review our Permit Procedure for more information.

A completed Permit Application packet must contain the following information:

All Activities:

  • General vicinity map showing the property in relation to the nearest lake mile.
  • Location of the activity within the applicant’s property lines extended lakeward.

Dock (Drawing 1-1):

  • Drawing showing the location of the dock in relation to docks on either side, and across the cove or channel from the applicant’s dock.
  • Distance from the dock to the applicant’s property lines extended lakeward.
  • Distance from the end of the dock to the center of the channel or cove, and the distance across the channel or cove.
  • Distance to the nearest dock on each side of applicant’s dock.
  • Dimensions of the proposed dock.
  • The dock location drawing must be drawn to scale.

Bank Stabilization (Drawing 1-2):

  • Lowest elevation of the proposed activity. For a concrete seawall, this would generally be the elevation at the base of the wall.
  • Distance from the toe of the bank to the seawall.
