This approval ensures that the aggregation of nitrogen loading for septic systems meets the provisions of Title 5.
Any municipality proposing to implement a community nitrogen aggregation plan for a community must obtain MassDEP approval. This includes proposals in Zone IIs or Interim Wellhead Protection Areas, or in environmentally-sensitive areas such as systems serving new residential construction where the use of both septic systems and private wells is proposed.
See details in Step 5, below.
