All on-site stormwater runoff, whether from driveways, roofs, surface water, roof leaders or any other on-site sources, shall be directed by underground piping to such stormwater facilities as may be located in the street or other public rights-of-way. If no such public facilities are available, then all such on-site stormwater runoff shall be directed by underground piping into seepage pits installed on-site for that sole purpose. The size, capacity, location and construction of all such seepage pits shall be designed by a New Jersey registered architect or New Jersey licensed engineer and shall be submitted to the Borough Engineer for approval as a condition precedent to the issuance of a building permit. In no case may on-site stormwater be directed onto any neighboring or adjacent properties. The applicant for a construction permit shall be required, in addition to any other permit fee, to pay the sum of $250 to the Building Department for such review and inspection of all such seepage pits.
The sewerage connections referenced herein shall be constructed and installed in accordance with the following requirements:
The sewerage connections shall start from a point not less than three feet zero inches from the exterior side of the front wall and shall connect to the sewer discharge line previously installed by a New Jersey licensed plumber.
Such sewerage connection line shall extend from said three-foot-zero-inch point and connect to the upper 1/3 of the sewer main located in the public right-of-way using a new schedule 40 PVC line measuring a minimum of four inches in diameter.
Such PVC line shall be connected to the sewer main located in the street using a strap-on saddle with a built-in grommet. Fernco fittings are strictly prohibited and may not be used at any point along the sewerage connection.
Underground piping is to be installed on a six-inch bed of tamped sand and/or backfilled to within 12 inches of finish grade using damp sand on quarry process.
Provide cleanouts wherever piping has a change in direction. Cleanouts are to be brought up to final grade and finished flush with final grade or concrete surface as required.
A cleanout shall be installed in the area between the front property line and the line establishing the public right-of-way.
The Inspector is to take photographs of all seepage pits and sewer connection lines before approving them for backfilling. Photographs are to be turned over to the Building Department for inclusion in the building file for each location.
