Private Docks & Shoreline Permitting

Grette Associates has been meeting the permitting needs of private landowners in the Pacific Northwest for over a decade.

We work closely with local, state, and federal regulatory staff to secure permits for private docks, boat lifts, and mooring buoys on the Columbia River, Lake Chelan, Lake Wenatchee, Puget Sound, and other waterbodies throughout Washington and Oregon.  In addition, we help homeowners obtain agency approval for maintenance actions on shoreline structures, including seawall repair, bank stabilization, and improvements to near-shore buildings.  Our staff conduct site assessments to inform land-use decisions associated with property purchase, development potential, and to guide violation resolution and mitigation planning. When plans call for working in or near the water, let our expertise in project design and environmental permitting for the following activities help guide your success:

  • Docks (single- and joint-use)
  • Year-round Docks for Boat-in Properties
  • Boat Launches
  • Boat Lifts, Mooring Buoys, Swimfloats
  • Home and Outbuilding Construction
  • Seawall Repair
  • Property Redevelopment
  • Shoreline Stabilization
  • Shoreline Access Trails
