      5.   Drainage easements shall be required along the side lot lines between alternating lots. The accumulation of water from more than two (2) lots along interior lot lines shall not be permitted unless provision is made for the appropriate disposal of accumulated water; and
      6.   The city engineer may require public utility and other public easements at additional locations, or at different locations as reasonably necessary to accommodate other easements or public facilities.
   B.   Fire Protection:
      1.   Fire Hydrants: Fire hydrants shall be located as specified by the fire chief or designee. Fire hydrants shall be provided and installed in compliance with the city public improvement standards, specifications and plans manual.
