Operation & Maintenance Program

With the introduction of The State 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 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.
