Local Agency Management Program (2014)

Under AB 885, counties are required to develop Local Agency Management Programs (LAMPs), to regulate septic systems. HTO participated in a stakeholder process, led by County staff, and consisting of engineers, septic pumpers, agricultural representatives, the real estate community, and others, to develop the County’s LAMP. The new regulations establish requirements for the operation and installation of new and existing septic systems, conditions for upgrade to supplemental treatment, and a new program to address groundwater pollution from faulty systems.
