On-site Water Protection Program
this program is responsible for activities associated with subsurface sewage collection, treatment and disposal and for activities associated with private drinking water wells.
On-site Wastewater Disposal System
An on-site wastewater system involves the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater in single or multiple components. These include privies, septic tank systems, public or community wastewater systems, wastewater reuse or recycle systems, mechanical or biological wastewater treatment systems and any chemical toilet used only for human waste. A person owning or controlling a residence, place of business or place of public assembly shall provide an approved wastewater system. The Department regulates the installation, collection, treatment and disposal of septic systems and other types of wastewater systems in order to render them ecologically safe and to protect public health.
