What is the average tidal range and how does that impact the MLW and water access to the pier?

Unlike in Maine, the  Chesapeake Bay (and tributary) tides vary by a foot or two most days. However the tides are not your problem – the wind is the problem. Northerly winds in the winter and fall can drop the water level by three feet in addition to the low tide! Summer southerly winds can raise it the same amount. Storms coming up the Chesapeake Bay can bring water surges six feet or more above normal! There is a simple way to tell what the “average low water” level is by looking at the pilings – do you know what it is? And, if a serious storm is on the way, listen to the NOAA weather for updates so you can take care of your boat in an extreme tide!

Testimonials The Mr. Waterfront Team was amazing when it came to looking and finding a new place to live. They dedicated their time, even during our busy schedule to look and tour new places. When we finally found the one we were looking for, the Mr. Waterfront Team made sure the process was quick and easy with little stress. At the same time, I was in the process of renting my previous house. The Mr. Waterfront Team provided me with the necessary advice and forms to help me get started on being a property manager. I would highly recommend the Mr. Waterfront Team to anyone who is looking for a realtor! Chris C, Thomas Avenue, Arnold read more...
