Permit Sonoma will be hosting a public workshop on March 30, 2018, to discuss the revised Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) Manual.

The OWTS Manual provides the policy, procedural and technical details governing individual onsite wastewater treatment systems (also referred to as septic systems). Sonoma County’s OWTS Manual was revised and reviewed by a subcommittee of the Land Use Advisory Panel in February 2018. The revised OWTS Manual is now published for public review and comment.

The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors will be considering the revised OWTS manual in an upcoming meeting. If the Board approves the revision, the County will then submit a revised Local Area Management Program and OWTS Manual to the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.
