§ 152.04  METHODS OF REDUCING FLOOD LOSSES.
   In order to accomplish its purposes, this chapter uses the following methods:
   (A)   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;
   (B)   Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve the uses, be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction;
   (C)   Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels and natural protective barriers, which are involved in the accommodation of flood waters;
   (D)   Control filling, grading, dredging and other development which may increase flood damage; and
   (E)   Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert flood waters or which may increase flood hazards to other lands.
