On-Site Wastewater Treatment

What is the On-site Wastewater Advisory Committee?

ADEQ established the On-site Wastewater Advisory Committee (OWAC) to provide advice on the On-site Wastewater Treatment program.1 We seek input and/or feedback from OWAC on the following items.

  • Technical standards for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of systems
  • New or innovative technologies, materials and designs related to onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems that maintain and advance protection of public health and water quality
  • Technical issues to improve the efficiency of the regulatory program
  • Educational and training programs to improve the overall knowledge of owners and operators
  • Installation, operation and maintenance of onsite wastewater treatments systems, including graywater systems
  • Potential changes to program rules
