(B) The health commissioner or the commissioner's designated representative, without prior notice or hearing and in accordance with rules adopted by the director of health, may issue an emergency order requiring any action necessary to meet a public health emergency or to prevent or abate an imminent and substantial threat to surface water or ground water regarding domestic septage management or regarding a sewage treatment system that is being operated in a manner that does not comply with this chapter or rules adopted under it.
