    As a basis for cooperation with the federal government and its duly established agencies in the matter of flood control, the State defines its policy with reference to flood control developments as follows:

    (1) [Repealed.]

    (2) Where such flood control project is strictly for flood control purposes, no village or city in this State shall be inundated, flooded, or destroyed thereby.

    (3) Adequate compensation shall be made to any town whose grand list shall be substantially adversely affected by such strictly flood control project for the loss of its tax revenue.

    (4) Where cultivated agricultural lands in excess of 100 acres are to be taken for the purposes of a flood control project, or the recreational development of the State or the economy of the river basin involved may be affected thereby, the Department shall provide notice, an opportunity to submit comments, and an opportunity to request a public meeting in accordance with section 7713 (Type 2 Procedures) of this title. The Department shall determine the effect the flood control project will have upon agricultural land uses or recreational values in this State, or upon the economy of the river basin involved, and report its findings and recommendations to the proper federal agency or authority having the flood control project in charge for its consideration and recognition. The Department shall post its findings and recommendations as a final decision in accordance with chapter 170 of this title. (Amended 1959, No. 329 (Adj. Sess.), § 39, eff.
