Sewers vs septics in UGAs

Rep. Takko (D-Longview) and Sen. Angel (R-Port Orchard) both have bills (HB 2186 and SB 5995) dealing with cities who exercise their authority to require homeowners with failing septic systems to hook onto public sewer systems. We wrote about these measures last week – they seek to define what constitutes “cost prohibitive” sewer hookups. We have had productive meetings with the proponents and continue to hope that we will arrive at a mutually satisfactory proposal. Again, if you have an interest in this please contact Carl Schroeder.
