Onsite Sewage System Management Plan Update
In 2005, the State Department of Health adopted new onsite sewage system (OSS) rules, WAC 246-272A, which required the local health jurisdictions to write plans for the development and management of all OSS within their jurisdictions. Also, in 2006 the State Legislature added a new section to Title 70 RCW (RCW 70.118A) relating to the management of OSS in marine areas. In response to these requirements the Snohomish Health District adopted the initial 2007 Onsite Sewage System Management Plan.
Since the implementation of the 2007 Plan many of the elements have been completed and additional programs and enhancements are proposed. The proposed 2017 Plan describes the completion of projects and reflects the implementation and changes in Health District procedures and policies as well as new goals which will guide the Health District’s OSS Program for the coming years.
The Draft 2017 plan will be considered for adoption by the Snohomish Health District Board of Health this fall. To view the 2017 OSS Management Plan click here. Comments regarding the plan will be accepted by email or mail through September 30, 2017.
