It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in or cause any grading, cleaning, or excavation activities unless a grading permit has been issued by the Permits and Inspections Department as may be required by application of any provision of this Code. Without limitation to the preceding sentence, it shall be unlawful for any person to engage in or cause any grading, clearing, or excavation activities that may cause or result, directly or indirectly, in the disturbance of any land or soil areas sufficiently large to require a general NPDES construction site stormwater permit, without the property owner, tenant, or easement holder, or their agent, first obtaining a grading permit from the Permits and Inspections Department. This section shall not apply to grading performed solely for agricultural purposes.
