MI Statewide Code for Onsite Wastewater

A NOTE: On April 17, 2018 the third public discussion forum was held – to view the recording and download resources use this link.

[On May 31, 2018 – the following article was published – “Kill the Bill?: What price environmental protection?”

On March 8, 2018, WasteWater Education 501(c)3 was asked to host a public forum to allow discussion of a released draft of proposed legislation to enact a statewide Michigan Code for onsite wastewater systems.

To that point very little was known about how the process had been either created or conducted.

On March 8, 56 professionals representing a wide range of stakeholders were able to access and publicly discuss the Draft 1 Bill language for the first time.

As this has become a lengthy and convoluted conversation we have created a hierarchy of pages in the order information was released. See the Drop Down Menu above.
