Abstract Several sources were used to map the shoreline jurisdiction as shown on Figure 3 and synthesis maps in the map portfolio. The City of Moses Lake city and urban growth boundary were received from the City of Moses Lake. Lake boundaries were digitized from Washington Department of Transportation 1:24,000 black and white orthophotos (1996), based on estimating the ordinary high water mark using “greenline ” estimation. Associated wetland locations were mapped based on National Wetland Inventory information. For the purposes of this inventory, those wetlands assumed to be associated with shorelines (fall within 200 feet as measured from the ordinary high water mark, or if they are connected to the defined lake shoreline environment) are included in the shoreline area shown on Figure 3. To categorize distinct reaches of the Town’s shorelines for characterization, the shoreline jurisdiction was classified into thirty preliminary reaches based on biophysical characteristics, as well as general land uses. Table 1 indicates the location of shoreline segments, as well as the justification for breaks between reaches. Reaches are also shown on Figure 3.
