On-Site Sewage Disposal
The Regional Health Authority must be referred to for recommendations regarding all subdivisions in which
the minimum lot size is less than two hectares. When considering subdivision
proposals with on-site sewage disposal, such as septic tanks, the Medical
Health Officer requires that percolation and ground water table tests
be performed. The Medical Health Officer or his/her designate must be
invited to these tests.
A review by the local Environmental Health Officer or Public Health
Inspector may still be required for lots exceeding two hectares if the
Approving Officer deems it necessary.
