Danish term or phrase: vandspejlkote i sø
No quite sure how to translate this one. The document is a specification of structures and materials for a building project, and this paragraph relates to foundations. "Water level at sea" or "sea level" is my initial conclusion but would like a second opinion.

Der funderes overalt på glaciale aflejringer, generelt i form af moræneler. Fundamenter og gulvkonstruktion i ny nordfløj dimensioneres for opdrift baseret på oplyst vandspejlkote i sø.

Thanks for an help.

elevation number of lake water surface
Explanation:
Der mangler et gentiv-s, idet der burde have stået 'vandspejlskote i sø'. Eller bedre 'sø med vandspejl i kote [7,5 m; blot som eksempel] [over Dansk Normal Nul].
Og en kote er en højdekurve eller her 'elevation number'
