Any excavation, filling, or moving of material over 100 cubic yards requires a Land Reclamation Permit from the City. A permit may also be required from the Watershed District in the area.
If an application is more than 5,000 cubic yards, a Conditional Use Permit is required.
Permits are valid only for 100 cubic yards up to 5,000 cubic yards under Chapter 34 of the Blaine City Code. The fees are:
- $100 for 100 cubic yards to 500 cubic yards
- $350 for 500 cubic yards to 5,000 cubic yards
