Enforcement Site plan review and violations

We have had a few Site Plan development drawings showing previously approved sewer lines that were actually installed outside of their approved utility ROW's. It is apparently not uncommon. It would be very expensive to correct the placements, and usually it does not matter, however we recently had one 10 feet outside of its authorized ROW. This could be costly to future developments if relocation is needed for new building foundations, etc.

Does anyone provide for fines or bonds for utilities found located outside of the ROW in lieu of removal/relocation?

If they are located outside of their easements, the cost of relocation is normally on the utility.

You can't bond after the fact, but you should re-record easements based on where they are.

It's either that or the next round of development that digs up the street needs to relocate them. In the mean time follow Raf's advice and fix the easement.
