Rule 511-6-2-.10. Sewage Disposal

(1) Connection shall be made to a public or community sewage treatment system when such system is available within two hundred feet of the property line, or available in a public right-of-way abutting the property.
(2) Where public sewers are not available, as determined by the local governing agency, sewage disposal shall be provided to effectively dispose of all water carried wastes in a sanitary manner. No sewage, waste water, or other liquid effluent shall be discharged in such manner as to enter surface or subsurface water except following a treatment process approved prior to construction in conformity with existing State and local laws or by other means approved by the Health Authority. Such sewage disposal systems shall be constructed and maintained in a manner to prevent the creation of unsanitary conditions. The Health Authority may approve existing private sewage disposal systems giving satisfactory service.
(3) When central toilet/shower buildings are provided on the premises of a tourist accommodation, a dump station must be installed and sized based on the total number and type of trailer sites to be served and projected sewage flow, and all in accordance with local codes.
