§ 155.073  STORM WATER MANAGEMENT EASEMENTS.
   (A)   If any portion of the storm water management facilities will be located on property other than the property on which the storm water will originate, then the owner of the property on which the storm water will originate shall obtain a storm water management easement from the owner of the property on which all or a portion of the storm water management facilities will be located.  The storm water management easement shall define the scope of the easement to include at a minimum the legal right of the owner of the property on which the storm water will originate to access the property on which the storm water management facilities will be located for the purpose of installing, inspecting, and maintaining the storm water management facilities; shall run in perpetuity with the land benefitted by the easement, or until the storm water management facilities are removed, whichever is sooner; and shall be recorded in the office of the Charlevoix County Register of Deeds.
   (B)   A recorded copy of the storm water management easement shall be filed with the agent prior to the issuance of a SWM permit.
   (C)   The recorded storm water management easement shall not be revoked, terminated, re-conveyed, or amended without the prior written authorization of the agent.  Any such extinguished or revised storm water management easement shall be recorded in the office of the Charlevoix County Register of Deeds, and a recorded copy shall be filed with the agent.
