Enactment of Bill 2018-08


The Charles County Commissioners enacted Bill #2018-08 titled Septic Tank Risers. The legislation adds Chapter 122 to the Code of Charles County, and requires developers of new home construction, which utilizes private on-site septic systems, to construct a septic tank riser that is visible. The legislation also encourages existing County homeowners to voluntarily have septic tank risers installed when their septic system is cleaned by offering a partial reimbursement incentive.

Bill 2018-08 becomes effective on November 30, 2018.

Charles County Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
