On two different occasions, the applicant stated that shore protection was installed in the area that sustained damages, and therefore qualifies as a maintained natural feature and eligible for reimbursement.
Issues: 1) Was the damaged stream embankment maintained by the applicant.
Findings: 1) Yes. On two occasions the applicant's maintenance personnel applied embankment protection to the damaged area.
Rationale: The site is an improved and maintained natural facility.
