Sewage Management

About Us

On July 22, 1974, Pennsylvania’s Governor signed into Law Act 208 which amended the Sewage Facilities Act. This new law confers considerably more responsibility and authority on Pennsylvania’s Local Governments than in the Past and requires municipalities to employ a sewage enforcement officer who has been certified by the Department of Environmental Protection.

Our Duties

The Sewage Enforcement Officer (SEO) reviews and acts on all applications for a permit to install a subsurface sewage system. The SEO is responsible for revising or supplementing the official plan by submitting to D.E.P., subdivision modules for all new land development. The SEO also conducts all tests used to determine the suitability of a site for an individual or community sewage system. The SEO would maintain adequate files, records, and daily logs, and to submit copies of records to D.E.P. when requested. Finally, the SEO would perform all other duties necessary for the proper administration of the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act (Act 537).
