§ 53.020  ON-SITE STORM WATER SYSTEMS; ENFORCEMENT AND INSPECTIONS.
   (A)   All property owners and developers of developed real property within the city shall provide, manage, maintain and operate on-site storm water systems sufficient to collect, convey, detain and discharge storm water in a safe manner consistent with all city, state and federal laws and regulations.
   (B)   Pursuant I.C.A. § 364.12(3) or successor section of the state code, any failure to meet this obligation may constitute a nuisance and may be subject to an abatement action filed by the city. In the event a nuisance is found to exist, which the owner fails to properly abate within such reasonable time as allowed by the city, the city may enter upon the property and cause such work as is reasonably necessary to be performed, with the actual cost thereof assessed against the owner in the same manner as a tax levied against the property. The city shall have the right, pursuant to the authority of this section, for its designated officers and employees to enter upon private and public property owned by entities other than the city, upon reasonable notice to the owner thereof, to inspect the property and conduct surveys and engineering tests thereon in order to assure compliance.
