DEQ seeks comment on proposed revision to subsurface sewage disposal systems guidance manual
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
BOISE — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on a proposed revision to its guidance on how to design, construct, and operate subsurface sewage disposal systems.
The proposed revision to the Technical Guidance Manual for Individual and Subsurface Sewage Disposal Systems (TGM) addresses in-trench sand filters
The TGM is a web-based reference document used by builders and on-site wastewater system installers to select, design, and install subsurface sewage disposal systems to meet state requirements and by DEQ and public health districts to evaluate the site, proposed design, and construction of subsurface sewage disposal systems.
The changes are designed to ensure the TGM reflects current public health standards.
The proposed revisions, indicated in red ink, are available for review on DEQ's website (download at right).
Submit written comments on the proposed revisions by August 15, 2019, at 5 p.m MDT below or by mail or email to:
