The purpose of regulating the design, installation and maintenance of graywater systems is to prevent public and environmental health nuisance conditions caused by improper installations.  The program's goals are:

  • Ensure that these systems can operate in all weather conditions with minimal maintenance
  • Prevent the contamination of groundwater from improperly designed graywater systems
  • Prevent the contamination of surface water from improperly designed and operated graywater systems
  • Prevent contact with effluent by humans and animals
