from the introduction, "The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the present permitting system for controlling shoreline structures and to suggest possible improvements. Utilizing aerial photographs and topographic maps to create a computerized index of the structures, a comparison could be made between the years 1974 and 1976, inclusive, to determine what structures were built during this period. A listing of structures constructed during the interval was then compared with a list of the permits issued to identify those newly built structures for which a permit had or had not been issued according to the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) files searched."
