CHAPTER 6. BUILDING CODES.*
Article II. Flood Damage Prevention Regulations.
Sec. 6-2-22. Floodways.
Located within areas of special flood hazard established in Section 6-2-7
are areas designated as floodways. Since the floodway is an extremely hazardous
area due to the velocity of flood waters which carry debris, potential
projectiles and erosion potential, the following provisions
(1) Prohibit encroachments including fill, new construction,
substantial improvements and other development unless certification by a
registered professional engineer is provided demonstrating that encroachments
shall not result in any increase in flood elevation during the occurrence of the
base flood discharge.
(2) If subsection 6-2-22(1) is satisfied, all new
construction and substantial improvements and other proposed new development
shall comply with all other applicable flood hazard reduction provisions of Part
E of this article. (Ord. No. 1342, (part).)
