DNR Regulation Information
One of the main attributes of Dive Guys is that we pride ourselves in preserving the natural ecosystem in the lakes we service. For this reason, Dive Guys is in direct correspondence with members of the Minnesota and Wisconsin DNR programs to ensure that we are taking all of the proper steps and abiding by all permitting requirements. Dive Guys is happy to assist with any permitting applications or clarifications of the regulations.
In Minnesota, all companies hired for aquatic weed removal are required to possess a Commercial Mechanical Control permit. A list of qualifying companies, including Dive Guys, can be found here.
While possessing a Commercial Mechanical Control permit is sufficient for many jobs, certain jobs require additional permitting. Specific information on pertaining situations can be found here.
