Semi-Public Sewage Program
A semi-public sewage treatment system is a system that is used by a business or other non-residential building which generates less than 25,000 gallons of wastewater per day. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) is responsible for all regulatory activities of these systems (design, installation, and enforcement). Summit County Public Health (SCPH) contracts with the OEPA to conduct annual inspections of these systems to ensure that they are operational. SCPH currently inspects approximately 600 semi-public systems annually.
More information on the Semi-public Sewage Program can be found on the OEPA site.
