Chesbro requests progress report on revised AB 885 septic rules

SACRAMENTO – Assembly Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee Chairman Wesley Chesbro (D-Arcata) has asked the California Water Quality Control Board to report on progress the agency has made on revising proposed rules to regulate septic systems at a Committee hearing scheduled for Tuesday, April 14.


Earlier this year the Water Board proposed new regulations under AB 885 (2000) that, among several new requirements, would have made regular inspections of septic systems mandatory.


After encountering severe opposition from septic system owners at a dozen workshops across the state, the Water Board decided to withdraw its proposals and start over. New proposed regulations are expected to be announced later this year.


The Committee will also take action on three proposed bills related to AB 885 at Tuesday’s hearing.


The Committee hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in Room 444 at the Capitol Building.
