Kayl finishes shoreline training

June 12, 2013 · Updated 4:56 PM

Mindy Kayl completed the Department of Ecology training for determining Ordinary High Water Mark on May 9. The shoreline regulations base development setbacks on the OHWM.

The OHWM is different from “high tide” and the “mean high tide,” which are terms often used to describe various elevations of the shoreline. With the training, Kayl, who is a wetland consultant, can help property owners identify the OHWM and interpret county, state and federal regulations, as they apply to each unique parcel.
