The town council shall review all building and trailer permit applications for new construction or substantial improvements to determine whether proposed building sites will be reasonably safe from flooding.  If a proposed building is in a location that has a flood hazard, any proposed new construction or substantial improvement (including prefabricated and mobile homes) must:

A.  Be designed (or modified) and anchored to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement of the structure;

B.  Use construction materials and utility equipment that are resistant to flood damage; and

C.  Use construction methods and practices that will minimize damage.  (Ord. 52-B §1, 1975)

The town council shall review subdivision proposals and other proposed new developments to assure that:

15.44.030 New or replacement utility systems required--When.

The town council shall require new or replacement water supply systems and/or sanitary sewage systems to be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of floodwaters into the systems and discharges from the systems into floodwaters, and require on-site waste disposal systems to be located so as to avoid impairment of them or contamination from them during flooding.  (Ord. 52-B §3, 1975)
