A. Nonresidential Properties: All properties, other than residentially zoned properties, shall be drained into village approved drainage structures or into storm water detention facilities within said property. Drainage onto properties that abut a nonresidential property shall be strictly prohibited unless such drainage reasonably maintains an existing or historic drainage pattern or unless those other properties are designed to accommodate such drainage as approved by the village engineer.
B. Residential Properties: Residentially zoned lots or parcels shall be graded and drained in such a manner as to reasonably maintain existing or historic drainage patterns from and onto other abutting properties. To the greatest extent practical, drainage shall be directed into village approved drainage swales and/or easements provided and approved for such use.
C. Approval Required For Further Alterations: The passage of drainage to or from other properties shall not be obstructed or altered from the latest plan approved by the village engineer, without the further written approval of such village engineer.
D. Existing Field Tiles, Drains And Storm Sewers To Be Repaired, Replaced And/Or Rerouted: If any existing field tile, drain, or storm sewer is destroyed, damaged or interrupted during the course of any construction, said tile, drain, or storm sewer shall be immediately repaired, replaced and/or rerouted in a manner approved by the village engineer in order to maintain the existing or historic drainage patterns, unless, based upon the written determination of the village engineer and based upon evidence submitted to such village engineer, such tile, drain, or storm sewer should be abandoned.
E. Surface Drainage: Surface drainage shall not be directed into any right of way unless approved by the village engineer.
F. Point Of Discharge To Be Set Back; Certain Connections To Storm Sewers Required:
1. The point of discharge (i.e., the release at or above grade) of any sump pump drain, swimming pool drain, downspout drain or any other conduit, pipe, impervious surface, or drain which channels, collects or conveys water related to any structure or improvement shall be set back at least twenty feet (20') from any property line of the lot or parcel on which the structure or improvement is located unless such conduit, pipe, impervious surface, or drain is connected directly to a storm sewer within a public right of way (or one offered for dedication) or within a recorded drainage easement and such connection and the manner of such connection shall have been approved in advance in writing by the village engineer.
2. Every sump drain, swimming pool drain, downspout drain or any other conduit, pipe, impervious surface, or drain which temporarily, occasionally, periodically, or permanently channels, collects or conveys unpolluted water related to any structure or improvement shall be connected to a storm sewer which is within a public right of way (or one offered for public dedication) or within a recorded drainage easement if such a storm sewer exists, and such connection shall have been approved in advance in writing by the village engineer.
