Florida’s New Law

As of July 1, 2023, any property in Florida with a BMAP must now use a nutrient-reducing septic system. Watershed properties that are one acre or less in these counties must install one of these systems:

  • Hillsborough
  • Pasco
  • Hernando
  • Citrus
  • Sumter

The Impact on Homes and Businesse

This new mandate is designed to significantly reduce pollutants in the watershed, and it may affect you in one of the following ways:

  • Your septic system could be vulnerable to failure or compromise
  • A failed septic system could impact current groundwater conditions
  • You may need to redesign or update your wastewater disposal system
