The Private Sewage Disposal Program Helps Prevent the Spread of Disease
The Private Sewage Disposal Program regulates methods of disposing sewage from facilities and homes that are not served by public sewer systems, such as homes located in some rural areas. By helping to ensure that all sewage is discharged to a properly designed and operated waste facility, the Private Sewage Disposal Program helps eliminate transmission of disease, disease organisms, and nuisances.
