Restricted Areas and Danger Zones at Eglin Air Force Base, FL
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to revise several existing danger zone and restricted area regulations and to establish four new restricted areas within the Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) facilities and along the Eglin AFB facility shoreline in Florida. The Eglin AFB and Eglin Reservation span over 724 square miles with over 150 miles of waterway boundary. This amendment to the existing regulation is necessary to update their water boundary security plan to provide adequate protection to Eglin personnel and resources.
