The responsible person must review all permit applications to determine whether proposed building sites will be reasonably safe from flooding. If a proposed building site is in a flood prone area, all new construction and substantial improvements (including the placement of manufactures homes) must be:
   (A)   Designed (or modified) and adequately anchored to prevent floatation, collapse, or later movement of the structure resulting from hydrodynamic and hydrostatic loads, including the effects of buoyancy;
   (B)   Constructed with materials and utility equipment resistant to flood damage;
   (C)   Constructed by methods and practices that minimize flood damage;
   (D)   Constructed with electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air conditioning equipment and other service facilities that are designed and/or locate so as to prevent water from entering or accumulating within the components during conditions of flooding.
