Summary

New septic system technology. Requires the state department of health (state department) to establish a technical review panel consisting of individuals who hold certain positions or have certain qualifications relevant to onsite sewage systems or who represent certain organizations to which onsite sewage systems are important. Requires the technical review panel to decide whether "technology new to Indiana" (or "TNI", which refers to a sewage treatment method or process or sewage treatment equipment that is not recognized in the administrative rules of the state department or the executive board of the state department) is approved for general use in Indiana. Requires the technical review panel, in response to an application, to decide that a TNI: (1) is approved for general use in Indiana; (2) is approved for use in Indiana with certain conditions; (3) is approved for use in Indiana on a project-by-project basis; or (4) is not approved for use in Indiana. Requires the technical review panel to inform an applicant of the technical review panel's initial or final decision on a complete application not more than 90 days after notifying the applicant that it received the application. Requires the technical review panel to approve a TNI for general use in Indiana if: (1) the TNI has been certified as meeting the NSF/ANSI 40 Standard; (2) a proposed Indiana design and installation manual for the TNI is submitted with the permit application; and (3) the technical review panel certifies that the proposed Indiana design and installation manual meets the vertical and horizontal separation, sizing, and soil loading criteria of the state department. Provides that if: (1) a TNI meets the requirements of the NSF/ANSI 40, NSF/ANSI 245, or NSF/ANSI 350 standard; (2) the proposed Indiana design and installation manual for the TNI meets the vertical and horizontal separation, sizing, and soil loading criteria of the state department; and (3) a registered Indiana professional engineer prepares site specific plans for the use of the TNI in a residential or commercial application; the site specific plans may be approved by the local health department within 30 days, if the TNI is to be used in a residential application, and shall be approved by the state department upon submission of the site specific plans, if the TNI is to be used in a commercial application.
