Each applicant for a permit required by Section 1022.01 shall submit to the City Engineer plans and specifications fully disclosing and outlining the manner in which the applicant proposes to divert, obstruct, drain or otherwise vary the location, direction, size or capacity of a drainage ditch, depression or other conduit described in Section 1022.01. The City Engineer shall direct the Building Commissioner or his or her designee to issue a permit only if the applicant's proposed action will not create such a danger of flooding, backing or stagnation as will constitute a substantial risk to the health or safety of persons residing in the area surrounding or served by such drainage ditch, depression or other conduit, or endanger the property situated in the area, and, unless substantially equal capacity, is provided by such plans and specifications, only if the proposed action will not materially reduce the drainage capacity of such drainage ditch, depression or other conduit. At the direction of the City Engineer, and upon payment by the applicant of a fee as set forth in Chapter 214 of the Administration Code and the posting of the cash or bond required by Section 1022.03, the Building Commissioner or his or her designee shall issue a permit to take the proposed action, as approved by the City Engineer.
