AmerenUE is encouraging Lake of the Ozarks dock owners who are replacing permit and address signs, or installing new signs, to follow UE’s latest guidelines that now include posting the property’s 911 address.
Posting requirements include displaying the permit number, street address and zip code in three-inch block lettering of a contrasting color from the background material. The sign should be placed on the lake side of the dock in a location most visible from the cove or channel.
“These requirements will not only assist dock owners and neighbors in reporting an emergency, but will also assist 911 centers in dispatching the appropriate personnel to the proper location,” says Jeff Green, UE supervisor, Shoreline Management.

UE conducts a range of shoreline management activities at the Lake of the Ozarks under provisions of its federal license for the operation of Bagnell Dam and the Osage Power Plant, which created the lake in 1931.
