Alternative Sanitary Systems

Suffolk County has adopted a "Reclaim our Water" initiative in an effort to reduce the nitrogen pollution to the Great South Bay and Long Island Sound. Conventional onsite septic systems do not remove nitrogen from wastewater discharges. Alternative sanitary systems will be required to be installed in all new and failing sanitary systems within Suffolk County starting in January of 2018. Vollmuth & Brush is a certified designer of all alternative sanitary systems that are approved by Suffolk County. We will work on providing detailed plans as part of the Suffolk County Health Department process, and can oversee the installation of these sanitary systems to confirm compliance and ease the sign-off process.
