Commercial Developments, Land Divisions and Condominium Plan Approval
If a review of stormwater runoff management is requested by the local government agency the Water Resources Commissioner will perform a review based on these rules and regulations. The Water Resources Commissioner may hire a registered engineer to advise in the review. The added cost of hiring an engineer will be reflected in the fee. The Owner/Developer of the land development project will submit a set of construction plans and calculations to the Water Resources Commissioner in accordance with these rules and regulations.
A land development project will be reviewed and subject to the Construction Plan submittal requirements, Hydrology and Hydraulic Calculations, Accepted Coefficiency Factors and Deed Restrictions of the rules and regulations. After the review the Water Resources Commissioner will determine if the drainage facilities should be dedicated through a 433 Agreement to the Water Resources Commissioner or remain private. If the drainage facilities are to remain private or under the control of a municipality other than the Water Resources Commissioner, a written, signed and recorded document accepting full liability and responsibility for all drainage facilities by the developer and/or municipality may be required. Copies of this document will need to be submitted to the Water Resources Commissioner and the municipality requesting the review.
The review by the Water Resources Commissioner will be completed within thirty (30) days of receiving the necessary construction plans and calculations. A written review with recommendations will be sent to the Owner/Developer and the municipality requesting the review. The municipality can then enforce or reject the Water Resources Commissioner’s recommendations.
The fee for review will be paid to the Calhoun County Water Resources Commissioner by the Owner/Developer. The fee shall be submitted with the written request for review. If a consulting engineer is required to review the construction plans that cost will be paid by the Owner/Developer before issuance of review letter.
As-built construction plans must be submitted to the Calhoun County Water Resources Commissioner upon completion of project if a 433 Agreement is to be implemented.
