Optional Municipal Septic Management Ordinances

The rules require municipalities to demonstrate that areas to be served by individual subsurface sewage disposal systems (septic systems) are subject to a mandatory maintenance program, such as an ordinance, which ensures that all individual subsurface sewage disposal systems are functioning properly. This shall include requirements for periodic pump out and maintenance, as needed. (See N.J.A.C. 7:15-5.25(e)3) While municipalities with areas outside a Sewer Service Area are required to develop a plan or program, the adoption of an ordinance is optional.
