(a) Stormwater Management Easement. Prior to the approval of subdivision or site plan applications pertaining to land development activities described in TMC 13.35.010(a), the owner of the site shall provide for access to the facility at reasonable times for periodic inspection by the City, or its contractor or agent, and shall require the property owner to ensure that the facility is maintained in proper working condition to meet design standards and any other provisions established by this chapter. The stormwater management easement shall be shown on the recorded plat or granted by separate, recorded instrument.
(b) Inspection of Stormwater Facilities. The Utilities Director shall have the ability to conduct inspections of the stormwater facilities. Inspections may include, but are not limited to: reviewing maintenance and repair records; sampling discharges, surface water, groundwater, and material or water in drainage control facilities; and evaluating the condition of drainage control facilities and other stormwater treatment practices.
(c) Failure to Maintain Practices. If a responsible party fails or refuses to meet the requirements set forth in the stormwater management plan, the City, after reasonable notice, may pursue enforcement of the plan or the provisions of this chapter. (Ord. 20089 § 114, 10-17-17.)
