Coastal Construction

Problem: Separate assessments are done by DER and DNR in
regulating coastal construction.

Construction of a permanent structure on sandy beaches
seaward of the coastal control line established by DNR
requires a DNR permit.
DNR makes a coastal engineering assessment to review a
project's structural integrity and the impact of the design
and siting on the beach-dune system. Construction seaward
of the control line is prohibited if erosion is expected
landward within 30 years. The Governor and Cabinet, as the
head of DNR, issue permits.
DER is required to assess water quality and biological
impacts of coastal construction as they affect State
waters. DNR generally uses DER's biological assessment,
but a separate study is made if the location is within one
of Florida's forty aquatic preserves.

Proposed Solution:
Coastal construction regulation should remain in DNR. DNR
will be bound by the assessment of the WMD as it pertains
to waters of the state.
