Rule 1501-6-26 | Inspection procedures.
(A) The director or the director's authorized representative may make inspections during construction to ensure that the permanent structure and any erosion protection measures are being built or undertaken in compliance with the permit issued pursuant to division (B) of section 1506.07 of the Revised Code. The applicant shall be given reasonable prior notice of an inspection by the department, and all inspections shall be performed at reasonable times for conducting business.
(B) If an inspection reveals that any erection, construction, or redevelopment of a permanent structure is being conducted without a permit or in violation of the permit or that a required erosion protection measure is not in compliance with the permit, the director or the director's authorized representative may order that all work shall cease until the violation has been corrected to the satisfaction of the director. The director's order shall be in writing and shall indicate the specific nature of the violation. The order shall remain in effect until the violation has been corrected to the satisfaction of the director or the director's authorized representative. The person to whom an order is issued shall be afforded an adjudication hearing pursuant to Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. The director shall sustain the order if deemed appropriate after each person allegedly liable has had a hearing or has waived the right to a hearing.
