Policy for Siting, Design, Operation, and Management of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
Document Type
OTH - Other Document

Document Description
The proposed project is the adoption and implementation of a statewide onsite wastewater treatment system (OWTS) policy as required by Water Code sections 13290 et seq. Section 13290 et seq. of the Water Code directs the the State Water Board to provide statewide requirements for operation and permitting of certain categories of OWTS. The proposed policy would implement conditional waivers of Waste Discharge Requirements for the OWTS in four regulatory tiers. The proposed policy would be administered by the regional water quality control boards after incorporation into their water quality control plans (also called basin plans). Local agencies seeking authority to do so could implement the Policy along with the regional water quality control boards.
