(a) Sites that are in violation with the requirements on this chapter as, determined by the Storm Water Program Manager, shall be required to take immediate actions to correct the violations. Sites that do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, as determined by the Storm Water Program Manager, shall be subject to immediate actions such as withholding of inspections including building inspections or underground utility site inspections, stop work orders, cease and desist orders, and final inspections for occupancy permits or plat approval. Sites subject to such actions cannot resume work until all violations are corrected to the satisfaction of the Storm Water Program Manager and such restrictions are suspended in writing. In cases where a violation notice has been issued for a site, the owner/agent shall be granted a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed five calendar days to respond, in writing, to the violations and provide a timeline to complete the necessary corrections. The Storm Water Program Manager shall review and approve the appropriate timelines as he or she feels is appropriate for the violations under review. Responsible parties that object to such actions can appeal to such determination in accordance with Section 1060.17 herein.
(b) In the event that the provisions of this chapter and the provisions of Chapter 1058 of these Codified Ordinances, or the provisions of an approved SWP3 Plan, the more restrictive provisions shall prevail. Any activities or actions taken in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 1058 or through an approved SWP3 Plan shall not constitute a violation of this chapter.
