Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS staff concur that the three modifications are consistent with the intent of the report; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the report be modified in accordance with the following: 1. The second sentence of the second full paragraph on page 4 of the report be modified to read in accordance with the following: Constructing the foundation above the post development seasonal high water table ensures that perimeter foundation drains are only required during atypical conditions, such as very large storm events or unusually high water table conditions (e.g. during spring runoff conditions following a winter with very high snowfall). 2. The second sentence of the second full paragraph on page 5 of the report be modified to read in accordance with the following: The main focus of the hydrogeological investigations will be the determination of the post development seasonal high water table, with the goal of ensuring that underside of footing elevations are maintained above this level such that the operation of sump pump systems is only required during unusual conditions. 3. The second sentence of the first criterion for Requirements for Sump Pump Systems on page 6 of the report be modified to read in accordance with the following: The monitoring well program shall be designed and supervised by a hydrogeologist or qualified engineer, who will also be responsible for the overall hydrogeological assessment.
