Director’s Office

Hafa Adai and Tirow,

Welcome to DCRM’s website!

Sharing information with the public about our coastal resources and environment is one of our top priorities.

The Division of Coastal Resources Management (DCRM) is committed to increasing your ability to access information about our island’s coasts and environment through our website. Our work encompasses coastal issues, permitting, enforcement, education and outreach, nonpoint source pollution, water quality, coral reefs, climate change and marine monitoring here in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).

Additionally, we have planning and geographic information systems sections that support strategic planning efforts. They work together to integrate data that helps us implement management actions that further conserve, protect, and enhance our land and water resources.

Please feel free to browse and learn more about our work. Navigate through this site to learn more about our mission, programs, current projects, and additional resources, or contact us here. As this site grows we hope to hear your ideas and suggestions about how we can improve it and how we can best serve you.

Thank you for visiting our website!

Richard V. Salas
Director, DCRM
