Almost one-third of CT's population is served by subsurface sewage disposal (septic systems). Find almost everything you wanted to know about septic systems at the Dept. of Public Health's Environmental Engineering - Subsurface Sewage page. Scroll down to see the DPH Code Advisory links; the HBRACT has two representatives on the DPH Code Advisory Committee.
