New regulations for wastewater treatment

Government regulations controlling septic tanks and all other types of private wastewater treatment systems have changed recently. Known as the “General Binding Rules”, the regulations specify how these systems must be installed, used, and maintained. Since these regulations apply to every property in Silverdale, the Parish Council, with help from residents, is preparing information, and a presentation will be given at the Gaskell Hall in the near future to update residents about the changes and the new responsibilities these regulations impose on homeowners.
