§ 152.107  PROJECT TERMINATION.
   (A)   An orderly and timely termination of a project with land disturbing activities should be planned between all persons involved with a site.
   (B)   Nearing the end of the project, but prior to final land grading, seeding, and mulching, the person holding the permit should petition, in writing, the Building Inspector to allow the installation of 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 erosion control activities.
   (C)   When a project has been completed, the person holding the permit shall petition, in writing, the Building Inspector for approval of erosion control measures which agree to remain on the site. The Building Inspector shall subsequently inspect site to evaluate the adequacy of these control measures.
      (1)   If the erosion control measures are approved, any surety bonds and/or letters of credit shall be released forthrightly. However, maintenance responsibilities (see § 152.103) shall remain with the person owning the land.
      (2)   If the erosion control measures are not approved because they are not in line with either the erosion control plan or the general principles of this chapter, the Building Inspector 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 Building Inspector to evaluate the adequacy of the erosion control measures. If, in good faith, the Building Inspector again decides that the erosion control measures are inadequate, the Building Inspector may delay the release of any surety bonds and/or letters of credit for tip to two months. After an agreed upon time period of two months or longer has elapsed without correct measures being taken, the Building Inspector may use the surety bonds to finance changes or additions to the erosion control measures needed to complete the project.
