SHORELINE SUBSTANTIAL DEVELOPMENT/CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT Proposal is for culvert replacement where St. Andrews Drive crosses over an unnamed creek at Lake Limerick. Applicant: Public Works
Shandra O'Haleck, Planner, presented the staff report. This proposal was issued an emergency permit on 12-16-99 due to culvert failure that caused flooding of a nearby residence. The proposal included replacing two 2-foot diameter culverts with one culvert that has a 7 foot 5 inch rise and 12 foot 7 inch span. By replacing the old culverts that were approximately 155 feet long, with a shorter one, 103 feet of fish habitat will be restored. The downstream section was riprapped to provide stability and will be revegetated to provide habitat.
Due to inconsistencies with the Mason County Shoreline Master Program concerning down stream impacts, staff can only recommend approval of this permit with the following conditions:
1. The applicant shall remove silt and gravel, caused by this project, from Lake Limerick. Future siltation caused by natural equilibrium of the stream channel will not be the responsibility of the applicant. Plans shall be submitted, for approval, to the Mason County Planning Department that indicate the method to be employed.
2. The applicant shall comply with the specifications and conditions of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Hydraulic Project Approval (HPA) for this project and shall obtain an amended HPA for the debris removal.
3. A US Army Corps of Engineers Permit or Exemption in conjunction with a WA State Water Quality Certification shall be obtained prior to the performance of any activities waterward of the Ordinary High Water Mark.
4. All dredged material shall be moved to an upland site outside of shoreline jurisdiction.
5. All areas disturbed or newly created by construction activities must be revegetated, use bioengineering techniques, use clean durable riprap, or some other equivalent type of protection against erosion.
6. Woody vegetation shall be planted along the streambank for habitat, structure, and erosion control and shall be maintained to assure success.
7. The project must be consistent with all the applicable policies and other provisions of the Shoreline Management Act, its rules, and the Mason County Shoreline Master Program.
Cmmr. Cady referred to the statement in the staff report, due to prior knowledge by the applicant that this culvert was in need of repair, this proposal should not have been issued as an emergency. She noted there are times when areas can't be repaired due to scheduling conflicts and asked why this shouldn't have been issued as an emergency.
Ms. O'Haleck referred to the SEPA handbook, page 14, Section 184.108.40.206 Emergency Exemptions 1) an action is needed to avoid an imminent threat to public health or safety... . Poor planning by the proponent should not constitute an emergency.
Rich Geiger, Public Works, stated that as a result of the blow-out there was an exposed gas main for a distance in excess of 24 feet and they considered that a threat to life and limb and therefore they felt it qualified for an emergency.
Ms. O'Haleck interjected that information was not provided to Planning.
Mr. Geiger then addressed the condition for the removal of the gravel at the mouth of the creek. He understands there has been a plume marked by the Lake Limerick Club that extends well out into the lake. The method they proposed to clean up this gravel is using a crane with a clam shell sitting on the shore and this method is approved by the Corps of Engineers without going through a great deal of additional permit work. To remove the material further out, they May have to use a barge or some sort of suction equipment. The cost is unknown. For this, he knows the Corps would require a more comprehensive permit review, perhaps an individual permit. He doesn't know if that could be done in this season.
The Board asked Mr. Geiger if they can comply with Condition 1.
Mr. Geiger responded they can remove the silt and gravel out to a point but beyond that he cannot guarantee it. Regulatory agencies May not permit it. A floating platform is identified by the Corps as being an undesirable method. With regard to some type of suction arrangement, he doesn't know if that type of equipment is reasonably available with adequate power to draw the silts that distance. The clam shell would remove gravel as far as the boom would reach from the shore.
Cmmr. Bolender asked to what extent do they believe they are capable of dealing with the silt.
Mr. Geiger replied if they are able to find a piece of suction equipment, they would reasonably be able to remove the material that is within the operating limits of the suction machine. There would be a permit issue. The bottom line is they need to work from shore. He stated a survey was done of the culvert and existing land before the blow-out when the design was prepared for the replacement and they identified 130 cubic yards directly attributable to the blow-out. Any quantity in excess of that, was likely to come from secondary erosion.
Jerry Hauth, Public Works Director, further explained the process. Part of the complication of trying to remove the silts is that the lake bottom is primarily naturally occurring silts. In trying to remove any material as a suction dredge process, his experience has been that it has been almost impossible. They could get a permit to remove the sand and gravel that has deposited at the mouth of the creek. He would characterize that as the one gravel bar that is 15 to 20 feet wide, Maybe a little wider at the base and Maybe upwards of 100 feet long at the base. He believes that is pretty much distinguishable. He concurs with Mr. Geiger that other agencies May not allow any other removal than the gravel bar. He urged the Board to grant authorization to act on the gravel bar. There are silts in the gravel bar and he doesn't want the residents to be misled and have false expectations. His prior experience with suction dredges has not been effective.
Cmmr. Olsen suggested the condition be worded, the applicant shall remove as much silt and gravel as reasonably possible caused by this project.
Mr. Hauth stated he believes that what will be permitted to be removed will be based on the regulatory agencies and they will come out and give a project perimeter.
Darrell Winans, Lake Limerick, thanked the County for their efforts so far and stated their goal is to have the materials removed from the lake that were deposited from the wash-out. He stated there is a color variance between existing materials and the newly deposited materials. They have a continual battle with weeds and the lake filling itself with bio-solids and they don't want to add to the problem. He stated that looking at it from the waterside there appears to be 4 to 6 inches and that increases towards the mouth of the creek. He pointed out the material wasn't there before the wash-out. He stated two residents have property damage to the beaches. He understands there still will be silt released from the removal and Public Works will use geotech materials to act as silt fencing. He realizes some siltation will enter the lake and they can live with that. His main concern is that all the material is removed that can be, because they May not be able to obtain another permit and he wants to be certain the project is completed to the resident's satisfaction.
He would estimate the gravel bar to go out about 75 feet from the shoreline by at least 100 feet. He noted there will be some damage to the resident's property with moving equipment in and out and restoration will need to be done.
The wording of the condition 1 was discussed so there is a clear reference of the area and it is in the scope of what Public Works can do.
Cmmr. Cady asked about beach damage to residents property.
Mr. Winans presented folders with additional information.
Bob King, Lake Limerick, lot 62, division 3, stated at the time of the excavation the water ran brown for three days.
Photos of the area were displayed to the Board and discussed.
Neil Burkel, E 1980 St. Andrews Dr., stated he gave the County permission to enter his property in order to complete the project. He thanked the County for repairing the damage that was done to his property. He believes it May go out 125 to 150 feet. He noted it is now difficult to access his dock by water due to the build up. He urged the County to make a good effort to remove the mud and silt. He is afraid it May affect his property values.
Cmmr. Bolender stated that based on testimony and knowledge of what can be done within limitations, he believes the permit can be moved forward with appropriate conditions to allow Public Works to remove as much gravel and material as they can from the shore and pursue a permit with the Corps to remove materials beyond what can be reached from shore.
Mr. Hauth stated it appears two permits are in order. This first permit May be exempted and then pursue an additional permit.
Cmmr. Olsen suggested language amendments to condition 1 - The applicant shall remove as much silt and gravel as immediately permittable, caused by this project, from Lake Limerick. Future siltation caused by natural equilibrium of the stream channel will not be the responsibility of the applicant. Plans shall be submitted for approval to the Mason County Planning Department that indicate the method to be employed.
Cmmr. Cady suggested changes to condition #3, delete the "A" at beginning of condition, add an "s" to Permit in US Army Corps of Engineers Permit and add an "s" to Exemption.
Mr. Geiger stated that in permitting schemes, they could request a single JARPA as a two phased operation. The 1st phase would be from shore using those methods that are exempt from a more involved Corps permitting process. The 2nd phase would be for additional materials that are outside the physical area that are approved by the Corps as an exempted method. The 2nd phase wouldn't be limited in time. Or pursue two separate JARPA's for two separate operations.
He suggested language for condition 1 - The applicant shall submit plans for approval to Mason County Planning Department to indicate a two phased operation to be employed to remove silt and gravel caused by this project in Lake Limerick. The first phase shall use methods approved and exempted by the US Army Corps of Engineers and shall be completed before fall, 2000. Phase 2 will be employing those methods necessary to complete the silt and gravel removal and subject to obtaining required permits. Also add the language about future siltations not being the responsibility of the applicant as suggested by Ms. O'Haleck.
Cmmr. Cady/Olsen moved and seconded to approve Shoreline Substantial Development/Conditional Use Permit, SHR 2000-00007, Mason County Public Works, conditional approval with seven conditions, condition 1 being amended with language presented by Mr. Geiger including "future siltations caused by natural equilibrium in the stream channel will not be the responsibility of the applicant" and amend condition 3, remove "A" and make permit and exemption plural, and authorize the Chair to sign the findings of fact when prepared. Motion carried unanimously. B-aye; O-aye; C-aye.

SHORELINE SUBSTANTIAL DEVELOPMENT PERMIT Proposal to construct a joint use wooden stair tower on a property along Case Inlet; Applicant: Gregory & Debbie Fawcett; Larry & Vickie Gray.
Shandra O'Haleck, on behalf of Allan Borden presented the staff report. The proposal is the construction of a joint use wooden stair tower on a property along Case Inlet, .5 mile south of Grapeview along Grapeview Loop Road.
Staff finds the proposal consistent with the Shoreline Master Program criteria, subject to the conditions listed below:
1) The applicant shall comply with the policies and regulations of the Shoreline Management Act, Mason County Shoreline Master Program, and Mason County Building Department.
2) The use of pressure-treated wood piling is approved for use in this project, provided that the supplier certifies in writing that appropriate best management practices have been employed in its productions; and that the material is free of excessive surface residue prior to installation; and the material is "fixed" in the case of arsenical treated material. This certificate shall be provided to Mason County prior to construction.
3) The applicant shall secure a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Hydraulic Project Approval and follow all construction specifications authorized in that permit.
4) The applicant shall secure a Army Corps of Engineers revise and any needed permitting and follow all construction specifications authorized in that permit.
5) The applicant shall have prepared a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife eagle use management plan for the properties and follow all management specifications, including the timing of construction, authorized in that specific plan.
Cmmr. Cady asked what is involved in a eagle use management plan.
Mr. Borden explained it typically involves a Fish and Wildlife eagle management person to come on site who make any recommendations on development. It is typically a three or four page document and is specific to the property.
Cmmr. Olsen asked about the dimension of the level A platform.
Bob Boehm, agent, stated this is almost a mirror image of a project that was approved by the Board about five weeks ago. He believes it is the most environmentally friendly way of achieving access to the beach from the high bank area. He stated the platform is four feet for safety reasons.
Cmmr. Cady/Olsen moved and seconded to conditionally approve the Substantial Development Permit SHR 2000-00011 for Greg and Debbie Fawcett and Larry and Vickie Gray with five conditions as presented by staff and authorize the Chair to sign the Findings of Fact. Motion carried unanimously. B-aye; O-aye; C-aye.
SHORELINE SUBSTANTIAL DEVELOPMENT PERMIT CONT. from 5/23/00 - Proposal is to construct a multi-owner joint-use pier, ramp, and float proposal on Hood Canal; Applicant: Montana Reach, Inc.
Allan Borden, planning, presented a legal opinion from the Prosecuting Attorney to the Board. The legal opinion states they do not believe the proposed development for a joint-use dock complies with the master program. The Mason County Shoreline Master Program (MCSMP) Chpt. 7.08 p. 8 states a "joint-use private dock" is defined as follows: "A dock or float for pleasure craft moorage or water sports for exclusive use by two or more waterfront lot owners, excluding marinas." The application involves a single waterfront owner, Montana Reach, Inc., and the application is intended to benefit upland lots also owned by the corporation. It is their opinion the application does not meet the definition of a joint-use dock.
Mr. Borden then presented a memo that stated, based on a telephone conversation, Mr. Clift concluded that a corporation is included in the definition of person on page 9 of the MCSMP and is not part of the definition of community dock on page 4 of the MCSMP. A proposal on the property would be considered for the one owner standards for a pier-ramp-float noted in Chapter 7.16.170. This could be 100 feet in total length.
Cmmr. Cady stated that based on these opinions, a dock could be approved that goes out 100 feet. However, according to testimony, the 100 foot distance would not work.
Mr. Borden stated that is correct. The applicant submitted testimony that the 115' length is the only length that could be agreed upon by Fish and Wildlife based upon the aquatic evaluation.
Cmmr. Cady asked if this could be changed to a variance request in order to authorize the extra 15 feet.
Mr. Borden replied this would have to be remanded back to Shorelines Advisory Board.
Cmmr. Bolender noted that a variance would only be approved if that was the minimum necessary to afford relief. He wanted the applicant to be aware of this and not have false expectations.
Mr. Vermillion, applicant, stated the Marine Fish & Wildlife Association did a survey of the south shore on docks for the Army Corps of Engineers. It states only 9% of the property owners on the south shore of the Hood Canal have a dock, which indicates the south shore is not overly inundated with docks. He presented photos of the site to the Board. He stated he would like a variance. He suggested they could quit claim from the corporation some of the property to himself and his wife so there would be a separate piece of property from the corporation which would meet the legal requirements. He understands joint-use is for two to four property owners. He presented a drawing of the proposed boundary line adjustment to create two separate ownerships.
The process was discussed. If Mr. Vermillion pursues a boundary line adjustment, the Board can reconsider this as joint-use. If a variance is pursued, it would have to go back to the Shoreline Advisory Board.
Joan O'Neill, adjoining land owner, presented her analysis of the community use issue and she concurs with the legal opinion.
Cmmr. Cady/Olsen moved and seconded to continue this hearing for the Shoreline Substantial Development Permit, SHR 2000-00012, to July 11, 2000 at 10:30 a.m. in Commission Chambers. Motion carried unanimously. B-aye; O-aye; C-aye.
