Primary DEEP Programs Impacting Land Use

The DEEP has a variety of programs, both regulatory and non-regulatory, that impact land use.  Some impacts are direct (e.g., authorization for a new marina in coastal waters) and others are indirect (e.g., authorizing capacity upgrades at wastewater treatment plants that can lead to increased development).  The following is an alphabetical list of the more significant DEEP programs that impact land use.
