Coastal Zone Boundary Files

The CRM program manages coastal areas within two different types of boundaries, including:

  • The Coastal Zone Boundary (Also called the 306 Boundary). This is the main management area.
  • The Coastal Nonpoint Program Boundary (Also called the 6217 Boundary). This is a larger watershed based boundary for nonpoint source management activities and planning grants.

There are three options for viewing the program boundaries:

  1. PDF maps:
  2. eMapPA interactive map viewer - Only the Coastal zone/306 boundary is viewable.
    • Go to eMapPA
    • Draw a box around the area you want to zoom into Using the “plus magnifying glass” tool.
    • On the left layers list, click on the plus sign to expand the “Areas POI – Environmental” group.
    • Check the box next to “Coastal Zones” to view the boundary layers as a line
    • The Coastal Zone Boundary will show in a lime green color
  3. GIS layers - Spatial datasets of the boundaries can be requested by contacting the program office at: J. Samantha Burton,, 717-772-5635.
