This publication will answer many questions that homeowners or potential homeowners, realtors and lenders may have about residential on-site wastewater treatment systems. Information is based on Title 124: Rules and Regulations for the Design, Operation and Maintenance of On-site WastewaterTreatment Systems of the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ), which requires that a dwelling or establishment that generates wastewater have an on-site wastewater treatment system in accordance with those regulations, or be connected to a public wastewater treatment system. An establishment is a house, building, structure, or place that generates more than 1,000 gallons of wastewater per day, generates non-domestic wastewater, or serves as a restaurant or food preparation facility. Different regulations, which are not covered in this publication, may apply to an establishment. See NDEQ Title 124 for more information.
