A. Geological or flood hazard. If, in the opinion of the Planning and Development Director, the land area for which grading is proposed is subject to geological or flood hazard to the extent that the proposed corrective work will not eliminate or sufficiently reduce the hazard to human life or property, the grading permit and the building permits for habitable structures shall be denied.

B. Unlawful grading. The Planning and Development Director shall not issue a permit in any case where he finds that the work as proposed by the applicant will endanger any private property or result in the deposition of debris on any public way or seriously interfere with any existing drainage course. However, if it can be shown to the satisfaction of the Planning and Development Director that the hazard would be essentially eliminated by the construction of retaining structures, buttress fills, drainage devices, or by other means, the Planning and Development Director may issue the permit after the applicant has complied with Sections 32A-9.E and F.

C. Noncompliance with the NPDES/AZPDES Program. If, in the opinion of the Planning and Development Director, the activities covered by the permit would cause a violation of any aspect of the NPDES/AZPDES Program, a permit may be denied or may be granted subject to any requirements necessary to prevent or remedy the violation as expeditiously as practicable.
