§ 153.144  GRADING.
   (A)   Elevations for any site with a building located on it shall have a grade sloping away from the walls of the building to permit the flow of surface water. However, sunken or terraced areas may be permitted if they are constructed to prevent run-off surface water from flowing onto adjacent properties.
   (B)   Grading and/or filling of materials prior to, or after, application for zoning permits to elevate the grade for a taller structure is prohibited.
   (C)   No premises shall be filled or graded so as to discharge surface runoff on abutting premises in such a manner that will cause damage to adjacent properties.
