Livestock Water Development

Permanent improvements may not be constructed on school trust lands without a permit (N.D.C.C. 15-08-26). However, cost share and depreciation may be available for livestock water developments on land managed by the North Dakota Department of Trust Lands (NDDTL). Specific terms and conditions for the approved site are included in the granted development permit.

Early first contact and application submission are important for timely processing. Requests may require an onsite review and/or additional documentation. NDDTL understands some applications are immediate as there are times when contractors move into an area without notice and stay for only a short time. Please note such cases on the application so that NDDTL can prioritize the application for immediate attention.

Email is the preferred form of communication, but you may call NDDTL and request the Surface Division.
