Kan. Admin. Regs. § 5-41-1 - Channel changes; plans and specifications

Plans for a channel change shall include the following:

(a) A general location map or aerial photograph, showing the present alignment of the stream, location of the proposed channel change, section lines, property lines with names and addresses of adjoining landowners, drainage area, a north arrow, a bar scale, and any other prominent features;
(b) a detailed plan view of the project with stationing shown, including as many other views as necessary to fully describe the project;
(c) a profile drawing along the centerline of the proposed new channel. This profile shall extend five times the channel width upstream and an equivalent distance downstream from each end of the new channel. The stationing shown on the plan view shall correspond to stationing on the profile drawing. This drawing shall show the present ground surface, the present stream bed, and the grade line of the proposed new channel;
(d) cross sections of the existing stream at locations immediately above and below the proposed channel change. The location of these cross sections shall be described and shown on the plans. The elevations of the top of the existing banks and bottom of the channel shall be shown;
(e) at least one permanent bench mark conveniently located for use after construction, except for grassed waterways constructed for the purpose of conveying runoff without causing erosion or flooding. The location, description, and elevation of the permanent bench mark, to which all elevations are referred, shall be shown on the plans. The designer shall reference the project bench mark to the current national geodetic vertical datum, to a tolerance of plus or minus 1/2 foot on all channel changes involving perennial streams and where detailed floodplain data are available. Project datum shall be acceptable on all other channel changes; and
(f) a cross-sectional drawing of the proposed new channel, including dimensions.
