The floodplain protection in the St Louis Revised Code lays out everything from the duties of the floodplain administrator to flood hazard reduction techniques and management procedures. It sets specific design criteria, for example that residences may not have living spaces below one food above flood level, or that commercial buildings use space below groundlevel only for parking.
