Under the Michigan Mobile Home Commission Act the Water Resources Commissioner of Calhoun County must review manufactured (mobile) home construction projects. Under this law a preliminary plan shall be submitted to the Water Resources Commissioner. The law states under Section 19.8555C111 the Water Resources Commissioner shall review and may approve the drainage outlet. Even though the Mobile Home Commission Code does not require the submittal of detailed construction plans it does allow each individual county to publish and enforce their own standards. Calhoun County has developed standards which require the submission of construction plans for Water Resources Commissioner review of a manufactured (mobile) home parks.
The Water Resources Commissioner will not approve a manufactured (mobile) home park without detailed construction plans and calculations being submitted. These plans are subject to the same rules and regulations for preliminary plat approval. The fee for this review will be paid by the Owner/Developer and submitted with the construction plans. Upon review of the construction plans, calculations, deed restrictions and all fees paid, a review letter will be sent to the project engineer and a copy sent to the local municipality.
Under the Mobile Home Commission Act, the Water Resources Commissioner shall not have jurisdiction over interior drainage unless the drainage facilities are dedicated to the Water Resources Commissioner through a 433 Agreement. If any one other than the Water Resources Commissioner is in charge of the drainage facilities the Water Resources Commissioner may require a written and recorded document stating that the Owner/Developer and/or municipality will take full responsibility for the maintenance and liability of all drainage facilities. The Water Resources Commissioner will require a copy of that recorded document and a copy of the document will be sent to the local municipality before a letter of review is issued.
If a consulting engineer is required to review the construction plans that cost will be paid by the Owner/Developer before a letter of review is issued.
If a 433 Agreement is signed before final acceptance of the drain, as-built construction plans must be filed with the Water Resources Commissioner before final acceptance.
