In response to an emergency created by the landfall of tropical systems, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) may issue an Emergency Final Order (EFO) that waives specific rules and statutes to address the need for immediate response and recovery actions. The DEP Division of Water Resource Management has developed the following table to provide property owners and local governments with a concise explanation of activities that are authorized seaward of the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) under the EFO. Note that consultation with Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) may be required for activities conducted during marine turtle nesting season.
