What you need
State and federal facilities must obtain approval from MassDEP for:
- new systems
- upgrade of small systems (less than 10,000 gallons per day)
- upgrade of large systems (10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day) which are not failing
- expansion of an existing system
- pumping prior to septic tank, with or without variances.
In all cases, time extensions for issued Disposal System Construction Permits, Discontinuance of Percolation Tests, and Certificate of Compliance for state and federal facilities are part of this application.
Any state or federal organization required to obtain MassDEP approval of a proposed septic system must apply for this approval. However, upgrades to large systems that are failing are not included in this application. Those approvals are under WP 61d.
