On-site Wastewater Management
An On-site Wastewater Management Program was adopted by the Town in July 2006 to ensure that our precious water resources do not become contaminated from failing On-site Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS). For those readers who want to learn more about the program, please review the On-site Wastewater Management Plan which was approved by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management as well as the On-site Wastewater Management Ordinance which was adopted by the Town Council in July 2006.
Inspection & Maintenance Schedule
The Town has been divided into Inspection Sub-Districts. CLICK HERE to view the Sub-District Map to see in which subdistrict your property is included. In accordance with the Town’s On-Site Wastewater Ordinance, any property that relies on an on-site wastewater treatment system must have it inspected and placed on a routine inspection and maintenance schedule. Your specific inspection and maintenance schedule will be determined by your inspector.
