      (4)   APEX.  The point on an alluvial fan or similar landform below which the flow path of the major stream that formed the fan becomes unpredictable and alluvial fan flooding can occur. It is the highest elevation on an alluvial fan, which on undisturbed fans is generally the point where the major steam that formed the fan emerges from the mountain front.
      (5)   AREA OF SHALLOW FLOODING.  An area designated AO or AH Zone on the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The base flood depths range from one to three feet; a clearly defined channel does not exist; the path of flooding is unpredictable and indeterminate; and velocity flow may be evident.

Adverse effects of floods may include damages from overflow of land areas, effects of temporary backwater or sewers and local drainage channels, bank erosion or channel shifts, unsanitary conditions or other unfavorable conditions resulting from deposition of materials in stream channels during flood recessions, rise of ground water coincident with increased stream flow and interruption of traffic at bridge crossings.
      (15)   FLOOD INSURANCE RATE MAP (FIRM).  The official map on which the Federal Emergency Management Agency or Federal Insurance Administration has delineated both the areas of special flood hazards and the risk premium zones applicable to the community. The following flood hazard zones are shown on the FIRM:
         (A)   ZONE A.  Areas that are subject to inundation by the one percent annual chance flood event (100-year flood). Because detailed hydraulic analyses have not been performed, no area flood elevation or depths are shown. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (B)   ZONE AE.  Areas that are subject to inundation by the one percent annual chance flood event (100-year flood) determined by detailed methods. Area flood elevations are shown within these zones. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (C)   ZONE AH.  Areas that are subject to inundation by one percent annual chance shallow flooding (100-year flood) (usually areas of ponding) where average depths are between one and three feet. Area flood elevations derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown in this zone. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (D)   ZONE AO.  Areas that are subject to inundation by one percent annual chance shallow flooding (100-year flood) (usually sheet flow on sloping terrain) where average depths are between one and three feet. Average flood depths derived from detailed hydraulic analyses are shown within this zone. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (E)   ZONE A1-30. Areas that are subject to inundation by the one percent annual chance flood event (100-year flood), but which will ultimately be protected upon completion of an under- construction federal flood protection system. These are areas of special flood hazard where enough progress has been made on the construction of a protection system, such as dikes, dams, and levees, to
consider it complete for insurance rating purposes. ZONE A99 may only be used when the flood protection system has reached specified statutory progress toward completion. No area flood elevations or depths are shown. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (F)   ZONE A99.  Areas that are subject to inundation by the one percent annual chance flood event (100-year flood), but which will ultimately be protected upon completion of an under-construction federal flood protection system. These are areas of special flood hazard where enough progress has been made on the construction of a protection system, such as dikes, dams, and levees, to consider it complete for insurance rating purposes. ZONE A99 may only be used when the flood protection system has reached specified statutory progress toward completion. No area flood elevations or depths are shown. Mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply.
         (G)   ZONE D.  Unstudied areas where flood hazards are undetermined, but flooding is possible. No mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements apply, but coverage is available in participating communities.
         (H)   ZONE X.  Areas that are identified in the community FIS as areas of moderate or minimal hazard from the principal source of flood in the area. However, buildings in these zones could be flooded by severe, concentrated rainfall coupled with inadequate local drainage systems. Local storm water drainage systems are not normally considered in the community’s FIS. The failure of a local drainage system creates areas of high flood risk within these rate zones. Flood insurance is available in participating communities but is not required by regulation in these zones.
      (16)   FLOOD INSURANCE STUDY (FIS). The official report provided by the Federal Insurance Administration that includes flood profiles, the Flood Insurance Rate Map and the water surface elevation of the base flood.
      (17)   FLOODPLAIN OR FLOOD-PRONE AREA.  The relatively flat area or lowlands adjoining the channel of a stream or watercourse and subject to overflow by flood waters.
      (18)   FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT. The operation of an overall program of corrective and preventive measures for reducing flood damage and preserving and enhancing, where possible, natural resources in the floodplain, including but not limited to emergency preparedness plans, flood control works, floodplain management regulations, and open space plans.
      (19)   FLOODPLAIN ADMINISTRATOR. The Director of Public Works or his/her authorized designee.
      (20)   FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT REGULATIONS. This ordinance and other zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, building codes, health regulations, special purpose ordinances (such as grading and erosion control) and other application of police power which control development in flood- prone areas. This term describes Federal, State or local regulations in any combination thereof which provide standards for preventing and reducing flood loss and damage.
      (21)   FLOODPLAIN REVIEW AREAS.  See Chapter 82.14 (Floodplain Safety Overlay District).
      (22)   FLOOD-PROOFING. Any combination of structural and nonstructural additions, changes, or adjustments to structures which reduce or eliminate flood damage to real estate or improved real property, water and sanitary facilities, structures, and their contents. For guidelines on dry and wet flood- proofing, see FEMA Technical Bulletins TB 1-93, TB 3-93, and TB 7-93.
      (23)   FLOODWAY.  The channel of a river or other water course and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than one foot. Also referred to as REGULATORY FLOODWAY.
      (24)   FLOODWAY FRINGE. That area of the floodplain on either side of the “regulatory floodway” where encroachment may be permitted.
      (25)   FRAUD AND VICTIMIZATION. Any exception granted must not cause fraud on or victimization of the public.  In examining this requirement, the County will consider the fact that every newly constructed building adds to government responsibilities and remains a part of the community for 50 to 100 hundred years. Buildings that are permitted to be constructed below the area flood elevation are subject during all those years to increased risk of damage from floods, while future owners of the property and the community as a whole are subject to all the costs, inconvenience, danger, and suffering that those increased flood damages bring.  In addition, future owners may purchase the property, unaware that it is subject to potential flood damage, and can be insured only at very high flood insurance rates.
      (26)   FUNCTIONALLY DEPENDENT USE.  A use that cannot perform its intended purpose unless it is located or carried out in close proximity to water. The term includes only docking facilities, port facilities that are necessary for the loading and unloading of cargo or passengers, and ship building and ship repair facilities, but does not include long-term storage or related manufacturing facilities.
      (27)   HARDSHIP.  The exceptional hardship that would result from a failure to grant a requested variance.  The County requires that the variance be exceptional, unusual, and peculiar to the property involved.  Mere economic or financial hardship alone is not exceptional.  Inconvenience, aesthetic considerations, physical handicaps, personal preferences, or the disapproval of one’s neighbors likewise cannot, as a rule, qualify as an exceptional hardship.  All of these problems can be resolved through other means without granting a variance, even if the alternative is more expensive, or requires the property owner to build elsewhere or put the parcel to a different use than originally intended.
      (28)   HIGHEST ADJACENT GRADE.  The highest natural elevation of the ground surface before construction next to the proposed walls of a structure.
      (29)   HISTORIC STRUCTURE.

            (II)   Directly by the Secretary of the Interior in states without approved programs.
      (30)   LEVEE. A man-made structure, usually an earthen embankment, designed and constructed in accordance with sound engineering practices to contain, control or divert the flow of water so as to provide protection from temporary flooding.
      (31)   LEVEE SYSTEM. A flood protection system which consists of a levee, or levees, and associated structures, such as closure and drainage devices, which are constructed and operated in accord with sound engineering practices.
      (32)   LOWEST FLOOR.  For floodplain management purposes the LOWEST FLOOR of the lowest enclosed area (including basement). An unfinished or flood-resistant enclosure below the lowest floor, usable solely for parking of vehicles, building access or storage in an area other than a basement area is not considered a building’s LOWEST FLOOR; provided, that the enclosure is not built so as to render the structure in violation of the applicable non-elevation design requirements of this ordinance.
      (33)   MANUFACTURED HOME.  For floodplain management purposes, a structure, transportable in one or more sections, which is built on a permanent chassis and is designed for use with or without a permanent foundation when connected to the required utilities. For floodplain management purposes the term MANUFACTURED HOME also includes park trailers, travel trailers and other similar vehicles placed on a site for greater than 180 consecutive days.
      (34)   MANUFACTURED HOME PARK OR SUBDIVISION.  For floodplain management purposes, means a parcel (or contiguous parcels) of land divided into two or more manufactured home lots for sale or rent.
      (35)   MEAN SEA LEVEL. For purposes of the National Flood Insurance Program, the National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD) of 1929, North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988, or other datum, to which area flood elevations shown on a community’s Flood Insurance Rate Map are referenced.
      (36)   NEW CONSTRUCTION.  For floodplain management purposes, structures for which “the start of construction” commenced on or after October 17, 1978, including any subsequent improvements to the structures.
      (37)   NEW MANUFACTURED HOME PARK OR SUBDIVISION. A manufactured home park or subdivision for which the construction of facilities for servicing the lots on which the manufactured homes are to be affixed (including at a minimum, the installation of utilities, the construction of streets, and either final site grading or the pouring of concrete pads) is completed on or after October 17, 1978.
      (38)   OBSTRUCTION. Includes, but is not limited to, any dam, wall, wharf, embankment, levee, dike, pile, abutment, protection, excavation, channelization, bridge, conduit, culvert, building, wire, fence, rock, gravel, refuse, fill, structure, vegetation or other material in, along, across or projecting into any watercourse which may alter, impede, retard or change the direction and/or velocity of the flow of water, or due to its location, its propensity to snare or collect debris carried by the flow of water, or its likelihood of being carried downstream.
      (39)   ONE HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD. See BASE FLOOD.
      (40)   PROGRAM DEFICIENCY. A defect in a community’s floodplain management regulations or administrative procedures that impairs effective implementation of those floodplain management regulations.
      (41)   PUBLIC SAFETY AND NUISANCE. That the granting of an exception must not result in anything which is injurious to safety or health of an entire community or neighborhood, or any considerable number of persons, or unlawfully obstructs the free passage or use, in the customary manner, of any navigable lake, or river, bay, stream, canal, or basin.
      (42)   REGULATORY FLOODWAY.  The channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than one foot.
      (43)   REMEDY A VIOLATION.  To bring the structure or other development into compliance with State or local floodplain management regulations, or if this is not possible, to reduce the impacts of its noncompliance.  Ways that impacts may be reduced include protecting the structure or other affected development from flood damages, implementing the enforcement provisions of the ordinance or otherwise deterring future similar violations, or reducing State or Federal financial exposure with regard to the structure or other development.
      (44)   REHABILITATION.  An improvement made to an existing structure which does not affect the external dimensions of the structure.
      (45)   RIVERINE.  Relating to, formed by, or resembling a river (including tributaries), stream, brook, etc.

      (50)   START OF CONSTRUCTION.  Includes substantial improvement, and means the date the building permit was issued, provided the actual start of construction, repair, reconstruction, placement, or other improvement was within 180 days of the permit date. The actual start means either the first placement of permanent construction of a structure on a site, such as the pouring of slab or footings, the installation of piles, the construction of columns, or any work beyond the state of excavation; or the placement of a manufactured home on a foundation. Permanent construction does not include land preparation, such as clearing, grading and filling; nor does it include the installation of streets and/or walkways; nor does it include excavation for a basement, footings, piers, or foundations or the erection of temporary forms; nor does it include the installation on the property of accessory buildings, such as garages or sheds not occupied as dwelling units or not part of the main structure. For a substantial improvement, the actual start of construction means the first alteration of any wall, ceiling, floor, or other structural part of a building, whether or not that alteration affects the external dimensions of the building.
      (51)   STANDARD PROJECT FLOOD. A flood that would result from a storm that is considered reasonably characteristic of the region in which the drainage area is located, giving consideration to the runoff characteristics of the drainage area and excluding rare combinations of meteorologic and hydrologic conditions. Such a flood provides a reasonable upper limit to be considered in designing flood control improvements and floodplain limits.
      (52)   STRUCTURE. For floodplain management purposes, a walled and roofed building that ir principally above ground; this includes a gas or liquid storage tank or a manufactured home.
      (53)   SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE.  Damage of any origin sustained by a structure whereby the cost of restoring the structure to its before damaged condition would equal or exceed 50 percent of the market value of the structure before the damage occurred.
      (54)   SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT.  Any reconstruction, rehabilitation, addition, or other improvement of a structure, the cost of which equals or exceeds 50 percent of the market value of the structure before the “start of construction” of the improvement. This term includes structures that have incurred substantial damage, regardless of the actual repair work performed. The term does not, however, include either:
         (A)   Any project for improvement of a structure to correct existing violation of State or local health, sanitary, or safety code specification that have been identified by the local code enforcement official and that are the minimum necessary to assure safe living conditions; or
         (B)   Any alteration of a historic structure, provided that the alteration will not preclude the structure’s continued designation a historic structure.
      (55)   VIOLATION. The failure of a structure or other development to be fully compliant with this ordinance.
