Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Health; onsite sewage evaluations. Requires, for purposes of subdivision review, permit approval, and issuance of letters for residential development, the Board, Commissioner and Department of Health to accept private site evaluations and designs in compliance with the Board’s regulations for septic systems and other onsite sewage systems, designed and certified by licensed professional engineers or authorized on-site soil evaluators. Although the Department is not required to perform a field check of the private evaluations and designs prior to issuing a letter, permit or approval, the Department may conduct a review of the work and a field analysis to protect the public health and integrity of the Commonwealth’s environment. The Department must make a decision within 15 days of a request for a single lot evaluation and design approval and within 60 days of a request for multiple lot evaluation and design or subdivision review approval. If the Department fails to take action within these time lines, the designs, evaluations or subdivision reviews will be deemed approved and the letter, permit or approval issued.
