On-Site Wastewater Program (Septic Systems)
The goal of the On-site Wastewater Program is to protect the public's health through the safe disposal and treatment of wastewater.  Prior to building a facility, there must be a permitted plan on how that facility will dispose of the wastewater that it will generate.  When, a municipal sewer system is not available, the most common alternative is a sub-surface septic system, which will both treat and dispose of the wastewater on the site.
