Sewage Enforcement

State legislation known as the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act to require municipalities to employ a certified Sewage Enforcement Officer (SEO) to review and approve the design and installation of all on-lot sewage treatment systems.

The inspectors’ function involves the intensive evaluation of each applicant’s property by utilizing property site surveys, test pit profile analysis, percolation tests, slope readings, and the review of soil mapping information to determine compliance with state standards governing on-lot sewage systems.

The issuance of sewage permits, assistance in sewage system designs, and performance of final inspections are also required for suitable locations. The availability of alternate sewage systems for some locations may require further evaluations (such as interpretation of soil maps) and considerably more intricate system design.
