Alluvial Soils Areas
A. The Borough Zoning Officer shall require that a detailed on-site survey be made (by a qualified engineer, soil scientist or qualified sanitarian approved by the Borough Council) in accordance with accepted on-site survey techniques to determine the exact extent and nature of all areas susceptible to potential problems of flooding, wetness or pollution before issuing a zoning permit for:
(1) Any proposed use within an "alluvial soils" area; or,
(2) Any underground sewage disposal system which is located within 100 feet of an "alluvial soils" area. 
B. If the Zoning Officer has reason to believe that the proposed use may have difficulty complying with the standards of Part 5: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION, of the Zoning Chapter, then the Zoning Officer may require an applicant to provide written descriptions of proposed machinery, hazardous substances, operations and safeguards.
