The rules authorize county health boards to order homeowners to fix or replace failing septic systems and to turn the order over to the county prosecutor for enforcement if it’s ignored. Homeowners charged with creating a public nuisance could face civil fines of up to $100 a day and daily criminal fines of up to $1,000. Continue reading
