No portion of the minimum area requirement of a lot may be achieved by including land under water or land with an elevation below the mean high-water mark. All minimum front, side and rear yard requirements must be satisfied by measurement on dry land. For the purposes of this subsection, land which is in a stream not exceeding five feet in width or land in a pond not exceeding 2% of the total lot area at mean high-water level shall not be considered as under water. The elevation of the first story of any dwelling shall be at least seven feet above the mean high-water mark.
For purposes of this section, lands formerly under water which are presently above water or above the minimum elevation stated herein, by reason of the placement of fill or the depositing of soil materials from dredging or any other means, shall be deemed to be lands under water.
No building permit shall be issued for any lot which requires, as part of its area, the inclusion of lands defined herein as "lands under water."
