State Board of Health Significant Rule-making has been embarked upon on several topics. CAPR is working to provide oversight of the rule-making process regarding rules changes that will impact property owners' rights. Two areas of concern are the ongoing indepth rule changes for septic system (OSS) permitting and management. Another topic that can impact property owners negatively is "Animal Waste Management". CAPR has gained a seat at the stakeholder meetings on both of these topics with the intention of protecting property rights as rules review takes place.
The OSS rule-making process has been happening for several months and has been reviewing many pages of already burdensome rules.
