Title 17E Environmental Standards
Chapter 17E.030 Floodplain Management
Located within areas of special flood hazard established in SMC 17E.030.050 are areas designated as floodways. Since the floodway is an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of floodwaters that carry debris, potential projectiles, and erosion potential, the following provisions apply:
Any project of improvement of a structure to correct existing violations of state or local health, sanitary or safety code specification which have been identified by the local code enforcement official and which are the minimum necessary to assure safe living conditions or to structures identified as historic places shall not be included in the fifty percent.
