Located within areas of special flood hazard established in § 157.04 are areas designated as floodways. Since the floodway is an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of floodwaters which carry debris, potential projectiles and erosion potential, the following provisions apply:
(A) Encroachments, including fill, new construction, substantial improvements and other development, unless a technical evaluation demonstrates that encroachments shall not result in any increase in flood levels during the occurrence of the base flood discharge, are prohibited;
(B) If division (A) is satisfied, all new construction and substantial improvements shall comply with all applicable flood hazard reduction provisions of this chapter;
(C) Placement of any mobile homes, except in an existing mobile home park or existing mobile home subdivision, is prohibited.
