Abstract: ArcGIS LYR file: A subset of the master waterbody data set, wtrbdy_mast. Includes Puget Sound, larger inland waterbodies and major double-banks streams for King County and adjacent areas. For King County area includes an approximate high-tide and low-tide boundary that can be symbolized appropriately when using with different county-wide aerial photography.
