Shoreland Management

Big Stone County Environmental Services is responsible for implementing State Shoreland Rules found in Minnesota Rules 6120.2500 – 3900. Shoreland regulations were first implemented by the State in the early 1970’s to provide for the orderly development and protection of rivers and lakes. In 1993, Big Stone County adopted its own shoreland use controls through the Big Stone County Shoreland Management Resource Ordinance.   (Amendments 1, 2, 3)
