For those properties without access to sanitary sewer, the liquid waste disposal and treatment regulations amended in 2005 impose additional requirements and standards on liquid waste disposal systems (commonly referred to as septic systems) to ensure remaining liquid waste systems are in good operating condition.
Prior to the transfer of a property with an existing on-site liquid waste system, the current system owner shall have the system inspected and evaluated by an inspector utilizing a department approved form . . . In the event of a failed system, that includes, but is not limited to disposal fields, the owner shall remedy the failed system with department approval. — Regulation 188.8.131.522
