Coastal Lands

The Coastal Lands Program is responsible for maintaining the delicate balance between preservation and responsible development of marine and coastal areas. The Coastal Lands Program is involved with initiating and developing innovative shoreline management techniques that will help with the long-term goal of beach and coastal preservation.

Some of these initiatives include developing pilot programs for beach nourishment, streamlining the beach nourishment regulatory process, restoration of Waikiki Beach and funding sediment and coastal engineering studies to better understand complex coastal areas such as Waikiki and Kaanapali Beach. The Coastal Lands Division has also been developing public education programs and distributing information and guidelines on the best management, erosion control and construction practices for Hawaii’s coastal areas. Through these programs, the OCCL hopes to provide cutting edge coastal engineering and management and solutions that will prove to be useful for the next generation of coastal managers.
