12-1-10: GENERAL STANDARDS:
In all special flood hazard areas the following standards are required:
   A.   Construction Materials And Methods:
      1.   All new construction and substantial improvements shall be constructed with materials and utility equipment resistant to flood damage.
      2.   All new construction and substantial improvements shall be constructed using methods and practices that minimize flood damage.
      3.   All new construction and substantial improvements shall be constructed with electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air conditioning equipment and other service facilities that are designed and/or located so as to prevent water from entering or accumulating within the components during conditions of flooding.
   B.   Anchoring: All new construction and substantial improvements shall be designed (or modified) and adequately anchored to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement of the structure and capable of resisting the hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads, including the effects of buoyancy.
   C.   Utilities:
      1.   All new and replacement water supply systems shall be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of floodwaters into the system.
      2.   New and replacement sanitary sewage systems shall be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of floodwaters into the systems and discharge from the systems into floodwaters.
      3.   On site waste disposal systems shall be located to avoid impairment to them or contamination from them during flooding.
   D.   Subdivision Proposals:
      1.   All subdivision proposals shall be consistent with the need to minimize flood damage in accordance with the purposes and intent of this chapter.
      2.   All subdivision proposals shall meet the permit requirements of section 12-1-7, "Permit Procedures", of this chapter and all applicable provisions of this section and section 12-1-11, "Specific Standards", of this chapter.
      3.   All subdivision proposals shall have public utilities and facilities such as sewer, gas, electrical, and water systems located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage.
      4.   All subdivision proposals shall have adequate drainage provided to reduce exposure to flood hazards.
      5.   Base flood elevation data shall be provided for subdivision proposals and other proposed development which contain at least fifty (50) lots or five (5) acres (whichever is less). (Ord. 07-16, 7-10-2007)
