Shoreline Management Program

Headquarters POC

The purpose of the Shoreline Management Program is to protect and manage shorelines of all Civil Works water resource development projects under Corps jurisdiction in a manner that promotes the safe and healthful use by the public while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource for use by the public. The objective of all management actions is to achieve balance between permitted private uses and resource protection for general public use.

Except to honor written commitments made prior to December 13, 1974, private shoreline uses are not allowed on water resource projects where construction was initiated after this date or on water resource projects where no private shoreline uses existed as of that date. This page is a source of information about the Shoreline Management Program and related issues.
