    1.

    "Issuance of Flood Hazard Reports—Regular flood hazard report" means the process required to make an engineering analysis and issue a report commenting on the degree of flood hazard from rivers, streams, channels, and local drainage to which a subdivision, parcel of land, building, or proposed construction is subject. Said report may include recommendations for mitigating the flood hazard.

    2.

    "Issuance of Flood Hazard Reports—Quarry flood hazard report" means the process required to make an engineering analysis and issue a report evaluating the degree of flood hazard caused by or to which a quarry operation is subject.

    3.

    "Plan Check for Transfer Drains" means those plan checks required to determine the acceptability of a flood control or storm-drain project for transfer to the District for operation and maintenance under Section 13-3/4 of the District's Flood Control Act. Said checks may include, but shall not be limited to, a review of:

    a.

    Engineering plans and construction drawings;

    b.

    f.

    Accuracy of rights-of-way.

    4.

    "Plan Check for Work Affecting District Facilities—Minor revisions" and "Plan Check for Transfer Drains—Minor revisions" means those checks of revisions to previously approved plans requiring two hours or less per sheet for structural, hydraulic, or other technical reviews as deemed necessary by the District. Minor revisions shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

    a.

    Manhole modifications;

    b.

    Correcting errors and omissions to approved plans.

    5.

    "Plan Check for Work Affecting District Facilities—Major revisions" and "Plan Check for Transfer Drains—Major revisions" means those checks of revisions to previously approved plans requiring more than two hours for structural, hydraulic, or other technical reviews as deemed necessary by the District.

    2.

    "Inspection of Work Affecting District Facilities—Modifications of District facilities—Major" means those inspections which because of the nature of the project affect District facilities to such an extent as to require more than three individual inspections or continuous supervision of the project by one or more inspectors during the phase of construction which involves District facilities, including but not limited to, cover slabs over channels, extensive overbuilding, or storm drain realignment.

    3.

    "Inspection of Transfer Drains" means those inspections performed to determine the acceptability of a drainage facility proposed to be transferred to the District for operation and maintenance under Section 13-3/4 of the District's Flood Control Act.
