      (3)   Cause seepage or slides;
      (4)   Improperly divert the flow of drainage waters;
      (5)   Create a nuisance; or
      (6)   Otherwise in any manner endanger the health, safety or property of any other person, despite all precautions which the applicant might be ready, willing and able to take.
