Can I put rocks on the shoreline?

This activity generally pertains to rip rap, which is done primarily to protect the land from soil erosion. A County stipulated shoreland permit is required, and erosion control standards must be met.

You must submit a completed Stipulated Shoreland Permit Application, including a property survey/site plan, and the appropriate fee based upon the Kenosha County Department of Planning & Development Fee Schedule. 

Rip rap activities are also regulated by the DNR. Please call the Sturtevant DNR office at (262) 884-2355, or visit the DNR website for more information
