by Larry L. Reeder, US Army Corps of Engineers, Anchorage, AK, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


The Alaska District Regulatory Program has jurisdiction for the entire State of Alaska. There are more than 54,716 kilometers (34,000 miles) of coastline and numerous inland waterways that are regulated to various degrees by Department of the Army (DA) permits. This paper briefly describes the legislative background for DA regulatory jurisdiction, the types of regulatory projects that occur in the Alaskan coastal zone and gives an overview of research and data needs that would allow better decisions to be made for coastal resources. Recent problems with major permit actions are highlighted as areas to be avoided in the future.
