Ohio Lake Erie Phosphorus Task Force II Report 78 Progress on Recommendations of First Phosphorus Task Force TOPIC ISSUE RECOMMENDATION PROGRESS 2 Home Sewage Treatment Systems Data collected by the Ohio Department of Health in 2008 indicate that 23% of the household sewage treatment systems are failing with an additional 13% projected to fail within the next 5 years. Soil limitations, substandard or poor designs, space limitations, system age, shallow seasonal water tables and poor operation and maintenance were reported as most common reasons for system failure. A. A successful household sewage treatment system program for Ohio should be based on the establishment of statewide minimum standards/rules to provide program continuity across all 88 counties in Ohio. B. To protect public health and the environment, household sewage treatment systems must be designed to ensure the proper treatment (not disposal) of household sewage. C. Proper household sewage treatment system siting, design (based on the soil and site characteristics) and installation combined with an inspection and maintenance program will ensure system long-term sustainability and protect public health and the environment. D. The use of off-lot discharge for household sewage treatment systems should be minimized. E. A training and continuing education program for household sewage treatment system designers, installers, inspectors, regulators, maintainers and operators must be established. Changes to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Chapter 3718 (Home Sewage and Small Flow Systems), effective 9/17/2010 reflected the recommendations of the 2009 Household Sewage and Small Flows On-Site Sewage Treatment System Study Commission. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is proposing to replace Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 3701-29 with new proposed sewage treatment systems rules, anticipating final adoption of the rules by Fall 2013, with a proposed effective date of 1/1/2014.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
