Soil and Onsite Sewage
The Soil and Onsite Sewage Branch's main objective is to coordinate the onsite sewage program in the county health departments. The branch is one of three branches within the Community Environmental Protection (CEP) Division.
The Division of Community Environmental Protection (CEP) carries out programs to minimize the adverse effects of disposal of sewage and high-strength sewage on human health and the environment by establishing and enforcing requirements for the design, permitting, installation, approval, and use of onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems.
