* Virginia's HB 888 directs the Department of Health to take steps to eliminate evaluation and design services provided by the department for onsite sewage systems and private wells and provides specific requirements and a timeline for such elimination.
In addition, amendments made in 1995 to the State Board of Health On-Site Sewage Regulations, Chapter 246-272 WAC, restrict the installation of standard gravity onsite sewage systems in the state to lots that have a minimum of 2 feet of soil available above the water table or an impervious layer (e.g., clay or hardpan).
A couple in Spokane Valley, Washington, applied to the health department for a permit to install an onsite sewage system on their residential lot.
Management guidelines for onsite sewage systems. Proceedings of the second National Home Sewage Treatment Symposium, American Society of Agricultural Engineers, December 1977, Chicago, Illinois, 2, 236-242.
Later, as in most local health departments, I had the golden opportunity to expand my horizons and become involved in other aspects of environmental health, such as: rabies investigation, onsite sewage systems planning, private water supply approval, vector control, complaint investigation, epidemiological investigation, dairy product sanitation, supervision, and on and on and on.
During the wet season, the high watertable is a major cause of failing onsite sewage systems in the area.
Through the project, ADPH and BCHD sought to raise public awareness of the benefits of effective onsite sewage disposal and of the availability of alternatives to conventional onsite sewage systems.
In addition, the Health Department assesses the siting requirements and supervises the installation of approximately 1,000 onsite sewage systems per year.
