The Act provides procedures for the removal of floating structures used for habitation which have been fastened to the banks of, or embedded in, the beds of tidewaters of the state which are held in public trust or are navigable streams or rivers. The Act also directs the Department of Natural Resources to promulgate rules and regulations which establish standards for safety and construction. Structures which meet those standards and which were in place as of February 1, 1992 are eligible for permits on July 1 1992; such permits extend the time for removal by five years.
