§ 119. Dams and Related Structures.
(a) Dams and structures that act as dams constructed in the channels of intermittent streams must meet the following criteria:

(2) Erosion control may be required on the bank or levee slopes upstream and downstream of the proposed dam.
(3) Earthfill, including sand, and rockfill dams must be completely removed from the floodway prior to the beginning of flood season each year and may not be reinstalled prior to the end of flood season. (See Table 8.1.)
(4) All stanchions must be removed or lowered, and all flashboards and slide gates of a dam must be removed from the floodway prior to the beginning of flood season each year and may not be reinstalled prior to the end of flood season. (See Table 8.1.)
(5) The permittee must remove or lower all stanchions and must remove the flashboards and slide gates of a dam within twenty-four (24) hours after receiving written notification from the board.
