  2. Flood and erosion hazards, including areas subject to high-velocity waves.
  3. Industrial and commercial water-dependant uses.
  4. Water-dependant recreational and educational uses.
  5. Water quality and public health.
  6. Public access.
  7. Natural resources conservation including: tidal wetlands, estuaries, beaches, dunes, intertidal flats, escarpments, fish and shellfish resources, and rocky shores.
