§ 127. Boating Facilities.
(a) The standards for construction of wharves, piers, docks, boat houses, ramps, and similar boating facilities, are as follows:
(1) Boat ramps may not be cut into the levee section, but may be cut into a berm or placed on a fill.
(2) Boating facilities must be properly anchored to prevent breakaway during floodflows. Acceptable anchoring methods are as follows:
(A) Driven piling must meet the following criteria:
(i) Timber piles must be a minimum of twelve (12) inches in diameter and must be pressure treated.
(ii) The elevation of the top of each pile must be a minimum of two (2) feet above the design flood plane.
(B) Concrete deadmen must meet the following criteria:
(i) The concrete deadman must be of sufficient size to restrain the boating facility and be a minimum of one (1) cubic yard of concrete.
(ii) The concrete deadman must be attached to the floating facility with a steel cable, or equivalent, of sufficient size to restrain the facility.
(3) All appurtenant facilities, including utilities and walkways, installed on or through a levee section to provide service to wharves, piers, or docks, must conform to the appropriate section of the standards.
(b) After each period of high water, all debris caught by a boating facility must be cleared and disposed of outside the limits of the floodway and levee section.
(c) In the event that levee or bank erosion injurious to the adopted plan of flood control occurs at or adjacent to a boating facility, the permittee of the boating facility is responsible for the repair of the eroded area, and for the placement of adequate revetment to prevent further erosion.
(d) Any existing levee revetment or bank revetment damaged during the construction or operation of a boating facility must be restored to its original condition by the permittee of the boating facility.
(e) The levee crown may not be used for parking boat trailers or motor vehicles except where there is adequate crown roadway width to provide twenty (20) feet of unobstructed clearance for two-way vehicular traffic.
(f) Boating materials, equipment or accessories may not be stored on levee slopes.
(g) Floatable boating materials, equipment, or accessories must be securely anchored when stored in the floodway during the flood season.
(h) Boating materials, equipment, or accessories may be stored on the levee crown if storage does not prevent adequate inspection and maintenance of the levee, does not obstruct flood fight procedures, and the following additional requirements are met:
(1) There is adequate levee crown roadway width to provide a minimum of twenty (20) feet of unobstructed clearance for two- way vehicular traffic.
(2) Where a public road or highway is on the levee crown, the design width of the roadway, including the roadway shoulders, must remain clear.
(3) Boating materials, equipment, or accessories may not be stored within fourteen (14) feet of the landward levee shoulder.
(4) Boating materials, equipment or accessories may be stored to within fourteen (14) feet of the waterward leve e shoulder provided the waterward levee slope is revetted to the standards in section 121.
(5) Boating materials, equipment, or accessories may not be stored within thirty (30) feet of the waterward levee shoulder of a levee having an unrevetted waterward slope.
