Best available science is that scientific information applicable to the critical area prepared by local state or federal natural agencies or a qualified scientific professional that is consistent with the criteria established in WAC 395-195-900 through 365-195-925.

The assessment/study shall contain, at a minimum, the following information, as applicable:

a. The name and contact information of the applicant;

ii. Topography at two-foot (2') intervals;

iii. Limits of any areas to be cleared/impacted; and

iv. A description of the proposed stormwater management plan for the development and consideration of impacts to drainage alterations;

e. Accurate identification, location, and characterization of critical areas, water bodies, and buffers adjacent to the proposed project area or potentially impacted by the proposed project;
