For construction in A-Zones, the permit application shall include the following certifications, as applicable:
  1. Wet floodproofing certification. For applications involving wet floodproofed enclosures below the design flood elevation, flood zone compliance plans shall include a certification by the applicant, as applicable to the scope of work proposed, that "in accordance with ASCE 24, the use of the enclosure is limited to the parking of vehicles, building access, or storage, and that the design incorporates openings to allow for the automatic entry and exit of floodwaters for equalization of hydrostatic flood forces and flood damage-resistant materials and techniques that minimize damage to a structure by floodwater."
  2. Dry floodproofing certification for nonresidential buildings. For applications involving dry floodproofed buildings and structures that are nonresidential (for flood zone purposes), flood zone compliance plans shall include a certification by the applicant that "the structure is designed to be dry floodproofed with walls that are substantially impermeable to the passage of water and that all walls, floors, and flood shields are designed to resist hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, and other flood-related loads, including the effects of buoyancy resulting from flooding to the elevation listed in Table 6-1 in accordance with ASCE 24."
  3. Utility certifications. For all applications involving utility or mechanical work, including applications where such work is to be filed in a separate, related application, flood zone compliance plans shall include a certification by the applicant that "all heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical and other services facilities and equipment within the structure or site will be located or constructed so as to prevent water from entering or accumulating within the components during conditions of flooding in accordance with ASCE 24."
