    I'm considering building a new house in the mountains. How much property do I need to install a septic system and well?


    Answer:

    It depends on the zoning of the area and when the lot was created or subdivided.

    • Before 11/10/73 = 1 acre minimum
    • Between 11/10/73 and 12/05/77 = 2 acre minimum
    • After 12/05/77 = 5 acre minimum (but may be reduced to 3.5 acres per Section 4.2 B)

    Source: Public water system as defined by these regulations

    • Before 11/10/73 = 0.5 acre minimum
