Located within areas of special flood hazard established in section 10-13C-1 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 apply:

A. All encroachments are prohibited, 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 levels during the occurrence of the base flood discharge.

B. If subsection A of this section is satisfied, all new construction and substantial improvements shall comply with all applicable flood hazard reduction provisions of section 10-13C-4F.

C. Land within a floodway shall not be included in the calculation of the area of a parcel for the purposes of determining density or minimum lot size. (Ord. 2019-10-002, 10-10-2019)
