(A) For subdivision projects, the minor, major and emergency stormwater systems shall be located within easements or rights-of-way explicitly providing for public access for maintenance of such facilities. For all other projects requiring a permit, easements are required for public access for maintenance of stormwater facilities only for new construction or modifications involving components of a drainage system that conveys runoff from off-site properties.
(B) Easements and rights-of-way shall be of sufficient width. Storm sewers shall be installed at such locations therein as to permit open cut installation, maintenance and repair within the confines of the easement or right-of-way without relocation or other unreasonable interference with other public utilities located therein, and so as to meet the following minimum standards: 15 feet in width, plus for storm sewers in excess of 24 inches in diameter, two additional feet for each 12 inches or portion thereof of additional storm sewer diameter rounded up to the next multiple of five feet. Sewers with depths of greater than 15 feet may require additional width as determined by the administrator.
