The provisions of Article XI of the State Sanitary Code and Title V of the State Environmental Code (310 CMR 15.00) shall apply.
All septage from the Town of Sharon is to be delivered to the Charles River Pollution Control District in Medway, Massachusetts.
All septage haulers must be licensed to transport septage by both the Town of Sharon and the Town of Medway.
Haulers must complete a "sewage disposal permit and trip manifest form" at each location, which is used for control and verification purposes.
A fee of $25 per 1,000 gallons of Sharon septage or wastewater is to be paid by the hauler to the Charles River Pollution Control District (excess fees to be returned to the Town of Sharon to cover administrative costs of the septage disposal program).
It is recommended that all on-site sewage disposal systems within the Town of Sharon be pumped annually to extend the life of the leaching facility and help lessen groundwater pollution.
The Board of Health may require more frequent pumping of any disposal system where it finds such additional pumping necessary to the proper operation of the system, to protect water resources and to prevent danger to the public health.
