Wastewater Collection System Plans Review

REGULATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS:  Regulation 401 KAR 5:005 lists the fees and requirements for the design, construction and approval of clean water collection systems. The designs and specifications shall also meet the guidelines contained in the 2004 edition of  Recommended Standards for Wastewater Facilities, also referred to as Ten State Standards, available from Health Education Services (HES).

CONSTRUCTION PERMITS:  Prior to issuing a construction permit, the Division of Water (DOW) reviews plans and specifications with respect to sanitary features of design. The Construction Permit Application for Clean Water Collection System (Form: S-1a) should be submitted with the plans and specifications.

SANCTIONS:  The DOW also reviews sewer sanction exemption requests, which include sanitary sewer extension sanctions and tap-on sanctions. The Sewer Sanction Exception Form must accompany exception requests.
