Your Marine Waterfront was originally developed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW). SCBC then worked collaboratively with DFW to create a Canadian edition which reflects relevant Canadian laws and policies.
With iconic views and easy access to recreation, owning a waterfront property is a dream-come-true for many. But a property’s greatest asset—its waterfront location—may come with concerns about erosion, flooding and exposure to the elements.
In many locations, hard vertical structures like seawalls can be replaced with elements that are functional, attractive and better for the environment.
Your Marine Waterfront describes the first three steps to protecting your home, enhancing your property and enjoying your beach:
- assessing your site,
- evaluating design techniques that may best fit your situation, and
- accessing other helpful information.
