Objective: To ensure that all one, two and three family dwellings have a properly installed home sewage disposal system and that no health hazards exist through a sewage nuisance.
New systems, alteration, replacement, small flows
With the introduction of Ohio’s 2015 Sewage Treatment Laws, the Ohio Department of Health requires that all health departments enroll all sewage treatment systems in an operation and maintenance program. All systems installed after 2015 are automatically enrolled in the program. Systems that were installed before 2015 will be added into the program during the following: sewage certifications, land splits, valid sewage nuisances, and any other activities where the septic is inspected. The requirement for the operation and maintenance program was mandated at the state level and was not a decision made at the local level or by local officials.
