Stormwater Issues

All drainage facilities should be designed to carry water to the nearest drainage way, storm sewer conveyance, or other approved points of collection and conveyance. Erosion of ground in the area of discharge should be prevented by the installation of erosive control devices.

No person should construct or allow an obstruction to be created, installed or maintained within any drainage way, detention facility, or engineered swale which will create ponding on adjacent property, divert water onto the adjoining property, or impede drainage. Fences may be erected in such areas provided they do not unnecessarily restrict the flow of water.

Water from intermittent sources such as discharges from sump pumps, downspouts, foundation drains, swimming pools, swimming pool backwashes, or other similar sources excluding lawn sprinklers to be discharged closer than five feet to any adjoining property line.
