These Acts recognize that the coastal marshlands, sand dunes, beaches, sandbars, and shoals of Georgia comprise important natural resources systems. The Acts provide for management and regulation of these systems by requiring permits for construction in these areas. The Acts provide for committees appointed by the Board of Natural Resources to administer the permit program and to respond to emergency situations. The Acts also establish civil penalties which may be imposed for violations.
