In order to provide more efficient, accurate processing and management of utility permit applications, the St. Louis County Public Works Department now implements an electronic utility permit application. With ePermitting the applicant will submit a utility permit application through an online website. Once their permit is approved the user has the ability to print the permit from their personal computer or access it from their smartphone. Utility permit applications will only be accepted through the ePermitting application.

The reference manual (below) provides instructions for creating a new user account, submitting a utility permit application, and managing your utility permits. Note: Although utility permit applications will be submitted electronically, St. Louis County can only accept payment for the utility permit application fee via check or money order. If you have questions, please call (218) 625-3830 for assistance.
NOTE: receipt of payment does not activate your permit! To confirm you have an active permit please check your ePermitting account and see your permit status.
