Permits for Shoreline Activities

Lake use permitting and COVID-19

Lake Services is still accepting and processing lake use permit applications as of 3/27/2020, but with a very limited amount of office time for staff. At least through mid-April, we will not be available to answer calls to the 1-800 phone line. All calls will be routed to voicemail and returned, but it may be the next business day. Therefore, you will receive a more timely response if you email LakeServices@Duke-Energy.com instead of calling.

During normal business operations, we advise applicants to expect it to take up to 30 days to process a lake use permit application. However, our reduced office presence will likely result in longer permit application processing times than is typical, so please plan accordingly.

We appreciate your patience and understanding!
