Abstract: In recent years, the Alabama coast has experienced significant pressures for development. To make development compatible with beach preservation, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) recently promulgated regulations (1) that, among other items, require construction of an artificial dune system prior to issuance of a building permit. The primary dune crestline was also used as a reference point to establish building construction setbacks, which were to be located 40 feet (12. 2 meters) inland of the primary dune crestline.
