Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal System Inspections (Support) – Failed 

HB 1425 (Caruso) requires onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems to be inspected at least once every five years and directs the Department of Environmental Protection to administer the inspection program with a phased-in implementation plan that prioritizes areas within a basin management action plan. The inspection is to be paid by the system owner, and an owner would be required to take remedial measures if an inspection identifies a system failure. (O’Hara)
