6105.1580 DEFINITION OF NORMAL HIGH WATER MARK.

The definition of "normal high water mark" (part 6105.0040) shall be changed to read: "Ordinary high water mark" means a mark delineating the highest water level which has been maintained for a sufficient period of time to leave evidence upon the landscape. In areas where the ordinary high water mark is not evident, setbacks shall be measured from the top of the bank of the river channel. A channel is a natural or artificial depression of perceptible extent, with definite bed and banks to confine and conduct flowing water either continuously or periodically.
