Explanation

The bill requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to allow for the use of alternative treatment septic systems under certain conditions.1

Expanding the use of alternative treatment septic systems is anticipated to result in a minimal revenue gain associated with increased issuance of general permits for this purpose.
