In the intricate web of environmental conservation, Sewage Enforcement Officers (SEOs) play a critical role in protecting our communities from the potential hazards of improperly managed sewage. Guided by a team of Four Certified Sewage Enforcement Officers at JHA, these dedicated professionals administer a comprehensive sewage program, overseeing the planning, installation, and maintenance of sewage systems. With a focus on regulatory compliance, SEOs review On-Lot Sewage Disposal System Designs, issue permits, and conduct soils evaluations and percolation tests to ensure proposed systems meet stringent standards.
SEOs conduct thorough site evaluations, considering soil conditions, topography, and proximity to water bodies, before any construction begins. The certified officers meticulously review On-Lot Sewage Disposal System Designs, assessing their environmental impact. Through diligent inspections, they identify potential issues and ensure that installations and repairs comply with regulations.
Certified SEOs are instrumental in mitigating environmental impact, investigating malfunctions and preventing the discharge of untreated or inadequately treated sewage into water bodies. Their meticulous planning and review processes contribute to the preservation of water quality, protecting aquatic ecosystems and minimizing the impact on flora and fauna. SEOs’ commitment to regulatory compliance, site evaluations, public education, and environmental impact mitigation plays a pivotal role in safeguarding our water sources.
