Specifically, the following information may be required:
(A) Application stage.
(1) Elevation in relation to mean sea level of the proposed lowest floor (“including basement”) of all buildings.

(4) Description of the extent to which any watercourse will be altered or relocated as a result of the proposed development.
(B) Construction stage.

Upon placement of the lowest floor or flood-proofing, by whatever construction means, it shall be the duty of the permit holder to submit to the Local Floodplain Coordinator a certificate of the elevation of the lowest floor or flood-proofed elevation, as built, in relation to Mean Sea Level. Said certificate shall be prepared by, or under the direct supervision of, a registered land surveyor or professional engineer and certified by same.
(2) When flood-proofing is utilized for a particular building, said certification shall be prepared by, or under the direct supervision of, a professional engineer or architect and certified by same. Any work undertaken prior to the submission of the certification shall be at the permit holder's risk. The Local Floodplain Coordinator shall review the submitted floor elevation survey data. Deficiencies detected by such review shall be corrected by the permit holder immediately and prior to further progressive work being permitted to proceed. Failure to submit the survey, or failure to make said corrections, shall be cause to issue a stop work order for the project.
