Division Four - Standards for Drainage - Chapter III. Drainage Plans

Chapter III. Drainage Plans

Sec. 403-1 Authority

403-1.01 County Master Drainage Plans

The County administers master drainage plans (MDP) over some portions of the County. In these MDP areas, the design hydrology is governed by the assumption made and methodology used, in the development of the MDP or its most recent revision. Modifications to the MDP's assumed land uses may result in the requirement of additional permanent facilities being constructed to mitigate unanticipated runoff.

If MDP planned facilities have not been constructed at the time of site development, then temporary facilities will be required to be constructed by the Developer. Such facilities may be abandoned upon completion of the MDP facilities intended to serve the site.

403-1.02 Special Districts

Special Districts, such as Community Service Districts, may prepare comprehensive drainage and/or flood control plans for areas under their jurisdiction. Such plans are subject to the review and approval of the County.

If the Special Districts planned facilities have not been constructed at the time of site development, then temporary facilities will be required to be constructed. Such facilities may be abandoned upon completion of the planned facilities intended to serve the site. County Service Areas are typically required to be formed for the maintenance of drainage facilities in the absence of another maintenance entity.

403-1.03 Subdivisions

These standards shall apply to the drainage/floodplain management requirements specified for subdivisions improvements in the County'sLand Division Ordinance.

If the subdivisions storm runoff mitigation measures are to be constructed as part of a comprehensive drainage plan, then each phase of the development shall be designed to function independently or in conjunction with completed development phases.

403-1.04 Mobile Home/Recreational Vehicle Parks

These standards shall apply to the drainage/floodplain management review of Mobile Home/Recreational Vehicle Parks specified in the County's Zoning Ordinance.

403-1.05 Site Development

These standards shall apply to the drainage/floodplain management requirements specified for site development in the County's Building Code, Grading Code, Floodplain Management Ordinance, and all other pertinent County Ordinances.
