JCP Permitting

Projects on the sandy beaches of Florida that may have impacts seaward of the Mean High Water Line typically require a more complex Joint Coastal Permit (JCP) from Florida Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We have provided JCP-related services to clients all over the state of Florida and in Alabama and Texas for beach and dune restoration projects. We strive for wonderful working relationships with many coastal engineers who provide the design of beach/dune restoration or other erosion control projects, and we have experience with the Palm Beach County Beach Management Agreement (BMA) permitting process. Ardea can also provide JCP-related environmental studies, such as dune vegetation surveys (both pre- and post-construction), nesting shorebird surveys, piping plover surveys, and mangrove assessments.
