[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Nissequogue 6-27-1991 as part of L.L. No. 3-1991. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Waste, pollutants and refuse — See Ch. 120.
This chapter shall be known as the "Regulation of Septic Systems Law."
The failure rate of septic systems in areas where the seasonal high groundwater table is three feet or less is very high. Such failures often result in groundwater contamination and can affect both existing and future supplies of drinking water. Protection of the public health and safety require the regulation by the Village of Nissequogue of the use and placement of septic systems in such areas.
No septic system shall be permitted in areas where the depth to the seasonal high groundwater table is three feet or less or within 150 feet of the upland boundary of a freshwater or tidal wetland, as shown on the Freshwater Wetlands Map and the Tidal Wetlands Map, as from time to time amended and filed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
No septic system shall be permitted within 150 feet of the crest of a bluff or placed where impermeable layers of soil or clay would cause septic effluent to leach onto or undermine the face of the bluff.
