            Every person who subdivides ground or who develops or improves an individual lot or tract by the construction of a building or buildings thereon shall provide for surface drainage.  The drainage shall be along the established drainage easements or other locations as permitted.

            Site grading shall be carried out in such a manner that surface water from each lot or tract will flow directly to a storm drain, improved channel, sodded swale, or paved street without crossing more than four (4) adjacent lots.

            A site drainage design plan shall be submitted showing the proposed drainage system before final approval of the construction drawings and plat recording.

            The subdivider, builder, or developer will be required to complete the drainage work as a required item of Section 18.36.070, number (11).

            After the subdivider, builder, or developer has sold, exchanged, or otherwise disposed of the lot, the new owner shall be responsible to maintain the integrity of the drainage system.
