Title 17E Environmental Standards
Chapter 17E.060 Shoreline Regulations
Article III. General Provisions: Part II. No Net Loss of Shoreline Ecological Functions and Mitigation
As established in WAC 173-26-186(8), the City shall ensure, at a minimum, “no net loss” of shoreline ecological functions necessary to sustain shoreline natural resources and to plan for restoration of ecological functions where they have been impaired. Nearly all shoreline areas, even substantially developed or degraded areas, retain important ecological functions. Therefore, pursuant to WAC 173-26-186(8), the shoreline regulations apply to all shoreline areas, not just those that remain relatively unaltered.
