    I would guess that varies with city and county codes...maybe not on a state level. I am only guessing about what does or does not need a local permit...two triggers could be depth and volume: anything over x inches deep (ie 12", 24"), anything of Y gallons (ie 1000 gallons, 2500 gallons). This is where you need to talk to local koi club members about what they have done about local permits.

    My permit was $900 for City of Corona. 12,000 gallons 24'x13'x 6.5'. Most cities do not have a code requirement for koi ponds, they will treat it just like a pool permit.

    Sorry man, wood will not last long in the dirt.

    That's a nice pond Viper! I paid a couple of hundred dollars for a city permit too. The city permit was a pain. They kept making appointments and then not show up. Totaling it up, the city inspections delayed my project about 3 weeks. I didn't lose more money but my contractors went broke waiting for them. It was immoral!
