The sump pump or drain discharge shall preferably be directed into an existing Township storm sewer system. If the storm sewer system is not available, then the discharge shall be directed onto a surface as grass, rock or a splash pad so that the discharge will be dissipated and not immediately drain to the Township right-of-way or adjacent properties. If the pump discharge is not directed into an existing storm sewer system, then the discharge must be a minimum of ten (10') feet from, and not directed perpendicular to, any private property line. The discharge location shall be as approved by the Township Engineer, or his designee. The discharge may also be directed to a swale, ditch, drywell, detention basin, drainage basin or other drainage facility or location as approved by the Township Engineer, or his designee.
b. The discharge location shall not create a public nuisance which is any thing, condition, or act which is or may become injurious or hazardous to the public or adjacent property.
c. The discharge shall not create a build-up of icing, standing water or algae growth on the street, sidewalk or the public right-of-way.
d. No person shall connect or cause or permit to be connected any sump pump, pipe drain, floor drain, surface drain, subsoil drain or leader pipe with the house to the sanitary sewer, or use the sanitary sewer connection or any pipe or drain connected therewith for the purpose of receiving and discharging drainage of any kind other than plumbing fixtures.
e. Sump pump and pipe drain discharges may not be directed into a Township street or right-of-way unless permission is granted by the Township Engineer, or his designee.
