Structures constructed across the channel to impound water to meet detention requirements shall be prohibited on any perennial stream unless part of a public flood control project with a net watershed benefit. Those streams appearing as blue on a USGS Quadrangle map shall be assumed perennial unless better data is obtained. All cross-stream structures for the purpose of impounding water to provide detention in all cases on perennial and intermittent streams must demonstrate that they will not cause short-term or long-term stream channel instability.
