Title 17E Environmental Standards
Chapter 17E.030 Floodplain Management
When base flood elevation data has not been provided (“A” Zones) in accordance with SMC 17E.030.050, the Floodplain Administrator shall obtain, review, and reasonably utilize any base flood elevation and floodway data available from a federal, state, or other source in order to administer SMC 17E.050.140 and SMC 17E.050.160.
Whenever a watercourse is to be altered or relocated:
The Floodplain Administrator shall make interpretations where needed, as to exact location of the boundaries of the areas of special flood hazards (for example, where there appears to be a conflict between a mapped boundary and actual field conditions). The person contesting the location of the boundary shall be given a reasonable opportunity to appeal the interpretation as provided in SMC 17E.030.090. Such appeals shall be granted consistent with the standards of Section 60.6 of the Rules and Regulations of the NFIP.
