        Water Allocation Compliance and Online Permitting

Welcome to the Water Use Program's Water Allocation Compliance and Online Permitting (WACOP) application. WACOP stores the facility, environmental, and historical information on all of Iowa’s water use permits. In WACOP you can apply for a new water use permit, pay fees, update contact information, enter your annual water use, and check on the status of your permit.

In Iowa, a water use permit is required of any entity that withdraws over 25,000 gallons in a 24-hour period during a calendar year. Iowa law requires that water users submit their water use report annually to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
