Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) The administrative authority shall not approve the installation, construction or alteration of an individual subsurface sewage disposal system unless the proposed system falls within the limits defined as follows:
1. A system serving one or more dwelling unit on one individual property where the total daily volume of sewage generated, calculated as prescribed in 7:9A-7.4, is no greater than 2,000 gallons per day and the type of waste discharged consists of sanitary sewage only; or
2. A system serving facilities other than one or more dwelling unit where the total daily volume of sewage generated, calculated as prescribed in 7:9A-7.4, is no greater than 2,000 gallons per day, the type of waste discharged consists of sanitary sewage only, and the system is connected to buildings, commercial units or other realty improvements on the same individual properties.
(b) When an individual subsurface sewage disposal system exceeds the limitations in (a) above, a treatment works approval and a NJPDES permit issued by the Department will be required.
(c) In cases where the actual volume of sanitary sewage discharged from a facility will be reduced by use of water-saving plumbing fixtures, recycling of renovated wastewater, incineration or composting of wastes, evaporation of sewage effluent or any other process, the requirement for obtaining a treatment works approval and a NJPDES permit shall be based upon the design volume of sanitary sewage, calculated as prescribed in 7:9A-7.4, rather than the actual discharge volume as modified by water conservation or special treatment processes.
