The revised on-site sewage system code governs the design, operation and maintenance of septic systems in the county.
It broadens continuing education requirements for licensed professionals to keep their certifications and gives the county more authority to enforce sewage system violations.
Violators can be ticketed with $125 or $250 civil infractions under the revised code.
Previously, violations were referred to the Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
The updated sewage code was formally adopted by the Clallam County Board of Health this month.
It is available on the Clallam County website, www.clallam.net, under “Current Issues.”
