The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources (MDMR) is the point of contact for wetlands permits in the Mississippi Coastal Zone, which includes Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties. Under agreements with the Mobile and Vicksburg districts of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), applications for wetland impacts in the Mississippi Coastal Zone are to be submitted to MDMR electronically through the Wetlands Permitting Portal or using the Joint Application and Notification Form. MDMR will then evaluate the permit application for completeness and forward copies to the appropriate agencies.
