Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems

The Water Board is considering approval of Alameda County's Local Agency Management Program (LAMP) for Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS). The LAMP is applicable to all OWTS in Alameda County. Approval of the LAMP will find that the LAMP is in compliance with the State Water Board's 2012 OWTS Policy, and authorize Alameda County Department of Environmental Health to permit and regulate OWTS within the County in accord with the LAMP. Water Board staff has prepared a public notice document, which is the first document listed here below, and which explains the contents of the other five attachments.
