Montgomery County Responds to State Septic Restrictions

Posted August 21, 2012 at 12:24 AM

Montgomery County’s legislative response to septic restrictions imposed by the state of Maryland is good news for property owners. The Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012, signed into law in May, potentially impacts a property owner’s ability to develop property using septic systems. The Montgomery County Council’s response has been to introduce legislation that will enable the county to approve both minor and major subdivisions on septic.
