The following documents are available for downloading in either Word 6.0 or Word 97, or Adobe Acrobat Reader (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader Software). There are also some PowerPoint files. Please select the link of your choice.

100 Year Storm Elevation Requirements

Note: Elevation values of above documents are in NGVD (1929) vertical datum; to convert values to NAVD (1988), a program utility such as Corpscon must be applied.

Coastal County Maps

Note: Maps show location of each county's CCCL and are provided to give a general overview of the location of each CCCL. The range monuments (R-monuments) shown on the maps are a statewide network of survey monumentation, used  by DEP, on all of the state's sandy beach shoreline. The coastal county maps were created to provide a quick reference between a coastal property and its proximity to the R-monument. The maps are divided into regions of the state, northwest, southwest, northeast and southeast. The maps are for information only and are not to scale.        Individual county maps are also available.

CCCL Reestablishment Flood Studies

Beaches and Shores Resource Center (BSRC) Coastal Construction Line Reestablishment Flood Studies - The BSRC site contains the flood study reports for each of the coastal counties with established Coastal Construction Control Lines.
