Motion: The RCARB chairman requests board approval of the following rule change (additional text shown in bold italic type below existing rule)

Quivira, Inc. Rules & Regulations Chapter VI
Residential Construction, page 3

II. CONSTRUCTION REGULATIONS
A.
7. Site Grading and Surface Water
The construction grading and final grading of the site for building or improvement shall be accomplished and permanently maintained in such a manner so as to control the flow of surface water and prohibit, in so far as possible, its entry onto adjacent private property in other than designated or controlled water courses. The owner shall be responsible for providing drainage and siltation control during construction.
Quivira, Inc. may require, as evidence, that the work for which the building application is approved will not cause the surface drainage to change in a manner that would adversely affect surrounding properties, watershed, streams or the lake, including but not limited to, a drainage study signed and stamped by a registered engineer so certifying.
