Operation and Maintenance (O&M) program
In January of 2015, Ohio Department of Health (ODH) adopted new private sewage laws (Ohio Administrative Code: Chapter 3701-29). These new laws mandate every private septic system also known as a sewage treatment system (STS) have an operation permit in order to be monitored on a regular basis. This will ensure STS are working correctly and not polluting the environment.

In Fayette County there are over 6,000 homes and businesses that use STS to treat wastewater. Because of the large number of systems in Fayette County, initial assessments will be completed by township with a little over 3 townships per year being added onto the O&M program starting in mid 2016.
