Septic System Regulation

If provision of public wastewater service is not feasible, minimize the environmental impact of septic systems by limiting development in areas where soil characteristics, high groundwater levels, or other factors will not support septic operation, mandating minimum specifications for proper siting and installation of septic systems, establishing minimum requirements for monitoring and maintenance of existing septic systems.
