OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE INSPECTIONS

These “O&M” programs sometimes known as “M&M” programs are in place to ensure that existing on-site sewage systems are properly maintained and functioning. These minimum standards have been developed to reduce the risk of contaminating drinking, ground, and surface waters, as well as reduce the risk of public exposure to untreated sewage.
