Rule 4781-12-16 | Sewage.


(A) All sewage and waste water from toilets, showers, bathtubs, slop sinks, lavatories, kitchen sinks, laundries, floor drains, and similar plumbing fixtures from manufactured homes and manufactured home parks shall be discharged into a sanitary sewerage system. There shall be no separate discharge from the sanitary sewerage system that could cause the discharge of any untreated sewage or other wastes into the waters of the state as defined in section 6111.01 of the Revised Code.

(B) Each manufactured home lot shall be provided with a four-inch lateral sanitary sewer that shall be effectively trapped and protected from freezing. The lateral sanitary sewer shall extend vertically to the surface of the ground and shall be properly protected to prevent breakage and the entrance of surface water into the sanitary sewerage system.

(C) The sanitary sewerage system shall be maintained in a safe and sanitary manner so as not to create a hazard to the health of the manufactured home park occupants.

(D) Any new and replacement sanitary sewerage systems installed after the effective date of this rule shall be designed to minimize or eliminate infiltration of flood waters into the systems and discharges from the systems into flood waters. On-site sanitary sewerage disposal systems shall be located to avoid impairment to them or contamination from them during flooding.

(E) All manufactured home park sanitary sewerage systems shall be approved by the Ohio environmental protection agency.
