1199.04 METHODS OF REDUCING FLOOD LOSS.
In order to accomplish its purpose, these regulations include methods and provisions for:
(a) Restricting or prohibiting uses which are dangerous to health, safety and property due to water hazards, or which result in damaging increases in flood heights or velocities;
(b) Requiring that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve such uses, be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction;
(c) Controlling the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers, which help accommodate or channel flood waters;
(d) Controlling filling, grading, dredging, excavating, and other development which may increase flood damage; and,
(e) Preventing or regulating the construction of flood barriers, which will unnaturally divert flood waters or which may increase flood hazards in other areas. (Ord. 98- 10. Passed 11-8-10.)
