Abstract:

With the enactment of the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 P.L. 92-583, the policy of the United States became the conservation, maintenance, and restoration of the coastal zone. Each coastal state is preparing a coastal zone management program to administer this policy. Federal agencies are required by the Act to coordinate with the states during the earliest conceptual planning phases of this program and to comply with the approved programs to the maximum extent practicable. Of the states surveyed, California has the most comprehensive program in draft stage. Other states programs range from general policies to just initiating the program planning. The programs could have significant impact on the USAF installation located in or near the coastal zone as identified by that state. Areas of particular impact will include land-use planning, air and water pollution, wast disposal systems, energy facility siting, and urban growth. The National defense mission as well as the mission support functions and services of the USAF could be affected if coordination with the responsible state coastal agency is undermined. General guidelines have been developed to aid the installations civil engineer, or his duly appointed representative, in this coordination process. Author
