(3) Boundaries indicated as following shorelines or the centerlines of streams, rivers, lakes, or other bodies of water shall be construed to follow such shorelines or centerlines, and in the event of change in the shoreline or centerline, the boundary shall be construed as moving with the actual shoreline or centerline;
(4) Boundaries indicated as approximately following designated limits of areas of special flood hazard shall be construed as following such limits;
