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 are fantastic! They were very patient with me as I spent over 3 months looking for a home. Since we were new to the east coast, I had to look at everything in my price range all over the tri-state region. They know the area very well and specialize in all things waterfront which was so helpful as this is our first waterfront home. I particularly appreciated that they communicated with me very quickly when something new would come on the market that met our criteria and were always willing to show me properties I found online as well. Closing went very smooth and they were diligent in reviewing all the contracts and documents for me. I highly recommend the Mr. Waterfront Team... Cindy W, Water Oak Point, Pasadena read more...
