Abstract : Periodic inspections of the improved channels shall be made by the Superintendent to ascertain whether or not: The channel is clear of debris, weeds, and wild growth. (2) The channel is being restricted by the deposition of waste material, the building of unauthorized structures, or other encroachments. (3) Sloughing of banks has occurred. (4) The capacity of the channel is being reduced by the formation of shoals. Inspections shall be made immediately following winds of near hurricane force; immediately following each high water period; and otherwise at intervals not exceeding 90 days and, also, at such intermediate times as may be necessary to insure the unrestricted flow of the creek. Immediate steps shall be taken to remedy any adverse conditions disclosed by such inspections.
