Florida Votes Against New Septic Tank Rules

A septic tank rule opposed by FAR was voted down yesterday by a state advisory panel. The proposed rule covers the Wekiva River area of Central Florida, but it's also a possible blueprint for new septic system rules throughout the state. If enacted as written, one area of concern to Realtors is timing: It would mandate a septic system inspection as part of every home sale; and since most septic systems would fail the seepage test, they'd have to be replaced. While the advisory panel's decision carries some weight and is applauded by FAR, the vote is not binding. The Florida Department of Health will make a final decision later.
