(A) Review procedures. A drainage plan shall be submitted to, and approved by, the City Engineer prior to the commencement of construction of any drainage facilities intended to serve any residential, commercial, or industrial development or redevelopment within the city.
(B) Plan approval and effect on site plan permit issuance.
(1) When a drainage plan is required prior to the issuance of a building permit, the structure covered by the permit shall not be used or occupied until the facilities, as shown on the approved drainage plan, have been completed by the permit applicant and approved by the City Manager.
(2) A permit issued by the city will be required for each individual building connection to the drainage system. This applies both to new connections and repairs to existing connections.
(C) Procedure for changes to plan after approval. If major changes are made to the project after the city issues an approval, the applicant must contact the city to determine if a revised approval is needed before proceeding with construction activity. A major change that would require a new approval includes, but is not limited to the following:
(1) Changes to the proposed limits of disturbance;
(2) Changes in proposed impervious area (such as building footprint or location);
(3) Changes in stormwater routing; and/or
(4) Changes in the type, placement, sizing, and/or location of stormwater management practices or strategy.
(D) Inspection requirements. The property owner will receive a notification from the city regarding facility inspection. City staff will schedule an onsite inspection of key structural components, storage capacity, and maintenance status. The owner will be notified prior to the scheduled site visit. Any defects and required maintenance identified during the inspection will be communicated. We will generally allow up to 60 days for the repairs to be completed.
