An orderly and timely termination of a project with land-disturbing activities should be planned between all persons involved with a site.
(A) Prior to final land grading, seeding, and mulching, the person holding the permit should petition the city, in writing, to obtain or allow the installation of any remaining utility lines on the site. Those persons involved in the installation of utility lines shall perform their work promptly to minimize the time period during which some of the land may be left in a relatively unprotected state. After the utility lines have been installed, the person holding the permit shall promptly complete all stormwater management activities.
(B) When a project has been completed, the person holding the permit shall petition, in writing, the city for approval of stormwater management measures which are to remain on the site to evaluate the adequacy of these control measures. The person with local approval shall submit "as built" drawings with their petition. If "as built" drawings are not submitted with the petition, the petition will not be accepted.
(1) If the stormwater management measures are approved, any surety bonds and/or letters of credit shall be released forthrightly. However, maintenance responsibilities (See § 156.09) shall remain with the person owning the land.
(2) If the stormwater management measures are not approved because they are not in line with either the stormwater pollution prevention plan or the general principles of this chapter, the city shall notify, in writing, the person holding the permit of unacceptable features. After a minimum period of two weeks during which corrective measures are taken, a petition, again in writing, may be sent asking the city to evaluate the adequacy of the stormwater management measures. If, in good faith, the city again decides that the stormwater management measures are inadequate, the city may delay the release of any surety bonds and/or letters of credit for up to two months. After an agreed upon time period of two months or longer has lapsed without corrective measures being taken, the city may use the surety bonds to finance changes or additions to the stormwater management measures needed to complete the project.
