Measures used to control erosion on a development site shall meet the requirements of the engineering design standards. Stripping of vegetation, regrading and cut and fill operations should be kept to a minimum, as should the amount of land and the duration of exposure. Whenever feasible, development plans should be made in conformance with topography in order to create the least erosion potential. Similarly, as much as possible, natural vegetation shall be retained, protected and supplemented. The city engineer shall require any further measures as necessary to prevent erosion on building sites and developments from depositing wastes or sediments on public streets or other property. Every effort shall be made to retain the natural vegetation on all ditches and drainageways. Ditches and drainageways will not be disturbed without the approval of the city engineer’s office.
