Snohomish County: Shoreline rules approved

Snohomish County rules for developing and preserving shorelines have received the state Department of Ecology’s approval, following years of work.

The new rules replace county regulations in place since 1974. They cover the county’s estimated 2,000 miles of freshwater and marine shoreline.

About 200 cities and counties statewide are updating or developing their shoreline programs under the state’s 1972 voter-approved Shoreline Management Act.

The law requires cities and counties with shorelines to develop and update local programs to minimize environmental damage, reserve areas for water-oriented uses and protect access to public area.
