Application #8911, by Lower

regulations to add article, 6 section

6.16, FRD Floodwater Retarding

Dam Breach Overlay District:

Section 6.16. FRD Floodwater Retarding

Dam Breach Overlay District

6.16.01 Intent:

The intent of this district is

to Certain areas of Butler County

below Floodwater Retarding Dam

(hereinafter referred to as FRD)

would be subject to substantial

flooding should a FRD breach occur.

This could result in significant

losses due to:

1. The cumulative effect of

obstructions in the FRD breach impact

area district causing increases

in flood heights and velocities;

and

2. The occupancy of the FRD

breach impact area district by

uses vulnerable to floods or hazardous

to others which are inadequately

elevated or otherwise protected

from flood damage.

The FRD breach impact area district

is designed to permit the

gainful use of certain lands which

are considered to be in the path of

potential flood waters and from

which structures and other valuable

property use that is subject to

damage by flood water should be

regulated. This would permit surface

runoff through such areas in

the event of a FRD breach with a

minimum of structural damage or

property loss, and a minimum of

obligation upon governmental authorities

for flood or disaster assistance.

As such, this Article is intended

to promote the public

health, safety, and general welfare,

and minimize these losses by

applying the provisions of this article

to the designated areas within

Butler County. And by taking

designated

in Butler County. And by taking

action to:

1. Restrict or prohibit

uses which are dangerous to

health, safety, or property in the

FRD breach impact area, or which

might cause undue increase in

flood heights; and

2. Protect individuals

from buying lands for the purpose

of building in the FRD breach impact

area which is unsuited for intended

purposes because of flood hazard.

6.16.02 Findings of Fact:

1. The FRD breach impact

area district of Saunders

County, Nebraska, are subject to

inundation which, in the event of a

FRD breach, could result in potential

loss of life and property,

health and safety hazards, disruption

of commerce and governmental

services, extraordinary public

expenditures for flood relief, and

impairment of the tax base; all of

which adversely affect the public

health, safety, and general welfare.

2. Such flood losses are

caused by:

a. The cumulative effect

of obstructions in FRD breach

impact areas causing increases in

flood heights and velocities.

b. The occupancy of

FRD breach impact areas by uses

vulnerable to floods or hazardous

to others, and which are inadequately

elevated or otherwise

protected from flood damages.

3. This article uses a

reasonable method of analyzing

FRD breach impact flood hazards

which consists of a series of interrelated

steps, as follows:

a. The use of engineering

calculations and breach impact

studies which indicate the

area and potential depth of inundation

for each FRD.

b. Computation of floodb.

Computation of floodway

required to convey the breach

flood-waters without increasing

flood heights more than one (1)

foot at any point.

c. Delineation of

breach impact area encroachment

lines within which no habitable

structure is permitted which could

cause any increase in flood height

6.16.03 General Provisions
