    Are there any types of systems that cannot be approved for a use permit?


    Certain systems will not qualify, such as:

    • systems that have an inspection report with a FAIL item marked;
    • systems that do not have a septic tank or primary treatment unit (cesspools);
    • "straight pipes" discharging sewage with no treatment;
    • and systems that are currently under investigation by the department as a reported malfunction.
