Landowner Stream Access Permit Program


The Landowner Stream Access Permit Program (LSAPP) is a permit process designed to provide landowners the opportunity to complete types of stream projects with technical assistance from the West Virginia Conservation Agency (WVCA). By cooperating with the WVCA, the permit application process is streamlined and the landowner is given expert technical advice regarding their proposed stream activities, which may include a project design if necessary.

Eligible Activities Include:
1. Excavation
2. Streambank stabilization
3. Debris removal
4. Channel restoration
5. Maintenance
