Location: 9842 Washougal River Road
Zoning: Rural Lands 2 (RL2) West End Community Subarea
Description: The applicant is requesting a Critical Area Variance to the Washougal River to construct a 2 bedroom single-family dwelling and a well for potable water. The Critical Area Variance will reduce the required 100 foot riparian buffer to 51 feet. The Washougal River is a Shoreline of County-wide Significance. Under the County’s current Shoreline Master Program, a Shoreline Substantial Development permit is not required for single-family residences and the required setback for all buildings and structures within the Conservancy Environment is 50 feet from the ordinary high water mark (OHWM). This proposal is exempt from a Shoreline Permit.

 Applicant: Briana Weatherly, for PacifiCorp 
File No: CA-17-05
Parcel No.: 07-06-00-0-0-1100-00 
Location: Gifford Pinchot National Forest, NW ¼ of Section 1, T7N, R6E, W.M. Latitude: 46.12323 N; Longitude: -122.01557 W
Zoning: Swift Subarea - Swift Recreational (SR)
Description: The Muddy River Acclimation Pond Project was originally constructed to implement fish reintroduction and other aquatic resource enhancement projects. High flows in recent years have resulted in erosion and instability of the project infrastructure. Due to poor effectiveness of the pond, PacifiCorp intends to 1) decommission the acclimation pond, 2) remove the supporting infrastructure of the acclimation pond system, and 3) restore site conditions following removal. A critical areas variance is required because the removal of the fish acclimation pond will occur within the setback of the Muddy River which is a regulated critical area.
