Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal Systems (OSTDS) Notice

On July 7, 2022, the Board adopted Ordinance No. 22-83, which institutes more rigorous standards for new and replacement onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) commonly referred to as "septic tanks" or "septic systems." Ordinance No. 22-83 provided that the requirements governing the type of OSTDS to be installed would not become effective until January 1, 2023. This period allows for proper planning and transitioning by property owners, engineers, contractors, and the OSTDS industry to the new standards. Until that date, building permit applications that have already been approved by DERM to be served by septic tanks may include septic models under the existing standard. In keeping with the educational campaign mandated by Ordinance No. 22-83, development applicants are being advised that no building permits will be issued after January 1, 2023 for septic systems that do not conform to the advanced treatment standards adopted via Ordinance No. 22-83. Hence, development applications (including plats) for parcels served by septic tanks that have not obtained building permits by January 1, 2023, will be required to conform to the advanced treatment standards adopted via Ordinance No. 22-83, regardless of when such applications have been submitted.
