(d) Appropriate measures shall be taken to ensure that removal of surface waters will not adversely affect neighboring properties or the Village storm drainage system.
(e) Provisions shall be made for the construction of storm sewer facilities, including grading, gutters, piping and treatment of turf, to manage storm water, and to prevent erosion and the formation of dust. Surface water on all paved areas shall be collected at intervals so that it will not obstruct the flow of vehicle or pedestrian traffic or create puddles in paved areas.
