Land Use Program


The goal of the Land Use Program is to reduce and prevent the existence of many diseases such as dysentery, infectious hepatitis, typhoid and paratyphoid, and various types of gastrointestinal problems that may be transmitted from one person to another through the fecal contamination associated with improperly maintained septic systems. Primary duties include oversight and regulatory compliance to assure the proper disposal of human wastes. The regulatory framework for this program is found in the Department of Human Resources Rules for On-Site Sewage Management Systems, Chapter 290-5-26.
