Septic Tanks
Problem: DER and HRS permit septic tanks of different

DER permits sewage disposal systems with a capacity greater
than 5000 gallons per day, while HRS permits onsite sewage
disposal systems with less capacity. Installation in
wetlands necessitates a mounded system for which a DER
dredge and fill permit is required. HRS issues its permits
through local county health units based primarily on health
An interagency variance board reviews denials of HRS
applications when requested.

s. 381.261, F.S.

s. 403.062, F.S.
s. 403.088, F.S.

Duties and powers of HRS
Supervision; private and certain public
water systems and individual sewage and
disposal systems.
Pollution control; underground, surface
and coastal waters.
Pollution operation permits; temporary
permits; conditions.

Proposed Solution:
Passive septic tank systems shall be regulated by HRS
regardless of their size, and active treatment systems
shall be regulated by DER as point sources of pollution.
