§ 151.04  Methods of Reducing Flood Loss
   In order to accomplish its purposes, this chapter uses the following methods:
   (1)   Restrict or prohibit uses that are dangerous to health, safety or property in times of flood, or cause excessive increases in flood heights or velocities;
   (2)   Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities, which serve such uses, be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction;
   (3)   Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers, which are involved in the accommodation of flood waters;
   (4)   Control filling, grading, dredging and other development, which may increase flood damage;
   (5)   Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert flood waters or which may increase flood hazards to other lands.
