A retaining wall exceeding four (4) feet in height is required to be designed and engineered by a licensed engineer; however, any wall in the rear yard shall not exceed eight (8) feet in height.
2. Construction of a retaining wall shall include a drainage plan, which provides for containment of run off water on site or drainage to a City approved location. Any person constructing a retaining wall that exceeds four (4) feet in height requiring engineering shall also be required to obtain a building permit prior to construction, which shall also include a stamped engineered plan for that wall at that location.
3. A person who constructs a retaining wall within a public utility easement shall be financially responsible for removal or reconstruction if that easement is needed per Utah Code 54-3-27. A typical lot in Tremonton may include a seven foot-six inch (7′-6″) minimum to fifteen (15) foot public utility easement entirely around the boundary of each lot. Any person constructing a retaining wall within a public utility easement where utilities do not exist shall install conduit or sleeve for future use.
4. Retaining walls shall not be permitted within public utility easements where a storm drain, culinary water line, pressurized irrigation line, or sewer line is installed.
D. Every lot intended for building construction shall have a minimum buildable area behind the front setback line of at least forty(40) percent of the minimum lot area required by the zone in which the lot is located, prior to any grading.
E. Any area within a subdivision, which has an average, slope of thirty one (31) percent or greater shall remain ungraded.
F. Any area within a subdivision that has an average percent of slope between twenty (20) percent and less than thirty one (31) percent may be graded, provided, however, the grading area shall be less than one half of the area of such slopes. Developer shall provide a slope analysis with shade areas according to slope to determine areas that may be graded.
G. Any fill material shall be prepared and compacted as specified in Section 1804 of the International Building Code. Developer shall provide a compaction test report to the City Engineer and Building Official.

K. Areas that have been graded shall be planted within one hundred-twenty (120) days after the completion of final grading with natural vegetation or materials approved by the City Engineer. If the City determines that the area is subject to erosion danger, then the developer shall plant actively growing sod with an appropriate irrigation system. If final grading is completed between October 15th and March 15th of the next year, then organic cover material shall be placed on the graded area to eliminate erosion until such time that the soil can be permanently planted.
L. Natural vegetation shall remain in areas where grading is not permitted, and additional vegetation may be required by the City in such areas. The City may also require additional landscaping in areas that were graded in order to supplement the natural vegetation and to prevent erosion and slope failures.
M. Surface water runoff drainage shall be designed and installed to prevent both on-site and off-site flooding and erosion. Such drainage design shall channel water runoff away from cut and fill slopes and away from all buildings.
N. Any buildable area or portion of a buildable area shall be no closer than thirty (30) feet to any man-made or natural drainage channel.

2.06.105 SECONDARY WATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS. In accordance with Utah Code Annotated (“UCA”) 10-9a-508, subdivisions that require water service shall provide to the City, in addition to those requirements associated with culinary water, the necessary water shares in the Bear River Canal Company and shall construct a secondary water transmission and distribution system sufficient to satisfy the existing and future uses of the occupants to be supplied by the City’s Secondary Water System in the proposed development.
A. The installment of the secondary water transmission and distribution system shall be done in accordance with the construction standards contained Chapter 3.19 of Title III.
B. The developer shall also provide water shares sufficient to meet the municipal needs that will be created by the development. For each irrigable acre of residential development, one (1) water share from the Bear River Canal Company shall be dedicated to the City. For single family detached housing subdivisions the City has determined that the required water shares to be dedicated to the City based upon lot sizes, in the table below, is roughly proportionate to the impacts of a residential development. The exact number of water shares from the Bear River Canal Company to be dedicated to the City for each irrigable acre of developed Industrial, Commercial, Institutional, and Multi-Family Dwelling is to be calculated by the Public Works Director or City Engineer after a site-specific analysis is performed of the irrigable acreage of the development. Said dedication of water shares shall occur prior to the approval or contingent upon the approval and for subdivisions of property and prior to the recording of the subdivision with the Box Elder County Recorder.
