All material excavated from trenches and found adjacent to the trench or in any street shall be piled and maintained in such manner as not to endanger those working in the trench, pedestrians, or users of the streets, and so that as little inconvenience as possible is caused to those using streets and adjoining property. Where the confines of the area being excavated are too narrow, considering traffic volume and width of the public way, to permit the piling of excavated material beside the trench, the Director of Public Works/City Engineer shall have the authority to require the excavated material to be hauled to a storage site pending backfill, in which event it shall be the responsibility of the person giving notice to secure the necessary permission and make all necessary arrangements for storage and disposal sites. All excavated material shall be laid compactly along the side of the trench and kept trimmed so as to cause as little inconvenience as reasonably possible to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Whenever necessary in order to expedite the flow of traffic or abate the dirt or dust nuisance, the Director of Public Works/City Engineer may require the excavated material to be confined within a specified area by boards or otherwise and to keep same covered.
