The City of Independence is the Local Government Unit (LGU) responsible for administering the rules and regulations related to water management. If you are planning a grading or excavation project within the City, contact City Hall before you begin your work. A permit may be required.
Your project may also require a permit from the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. Please check out the MCWD permitting page to find out! http://www.minnehahacreek.org/permits.php
