Pictured here, Raedeke Associates, Inc. Wetland Scientist Kolten Kosters (PWS) delineates the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) of a stream. The OHWM can be a critical feature for projects, as it determines the beginning point from which buffers and setbacks are measured. It is important to ensure the OHWM is delineated according to the best available science to accurately determine where project sites may be encumbered by critical areas protections.
