The Department of Environmental Protection promulgated on October 6, 1997 to implement the Rivers Protection Act amendments to the Wetlands Protection Act. Since then, the Department has gained considerable field experience and now recognizes that one aspect of these regulations, determining the 'Mean Annual High-Water (MAHW) Line,' can be dificult and confusing in the field. Locating the MAHW line is important because it establishes the lower boundary of the Riverfront Resource Area.
