Sec. 20-2-30. Care of drainage facilities.

If the work, use or encroachment authorized in the permit issued pursuant to this article interferes with drainage of any right-of-way or watercourse, the permittee shall provide for drainage as directed by the director of public works. Should the permittee fail to properly maintain existing drainage, the director of public works shall notify the permittee to take corrective action immediately upon receiving such notice. Proper maintenance for drainage shall include the prevention of drainage facility silting and the control of erosion of the surrounding land where work, use or encroachment authorized in the permit is taking place. In the event that action is required before the permittee can be notified or respond to such notification, the director of public works may take such action as may be necessary to correct the drainage at the expense of the permittee. (Ord. No. 1201, § 2 (part).)
