The bill that requires phasing out cesspools heads to the governor’s office, after the Senate and House passed it. It will take effect January 1, 2016.
Homeowners who are selling their property or transferring ownership have 12 months within the date of sale or transfer to remove and replace their cesspools.
Low-interest loans and hardship waivers will be available for low-income property owners or purchasers.
