COMMENTARY:
Community water or sewage disposal facilities that would be available only from a municipality are not considered “available” for the purposes of interpreting the provisions of §
151.170. Individual sewage disposal systems may be used for detached houses if they comply with Lake County Health Department standards. Additionally, alternative water sources in lieu of community water systems may be employed if they comply with Lake County Health Department standards.
   
   (B)   Nonresidential.
      (1)   Community water supply systems shall be required for all nonresidential uses, provided that if community water facilities are not available within 250 feet at the time of initial development (measured from the lot line of the subject lot), another approved water source may be employed if the systems comply with the requirements of the Lake County Health Department.
      (2)   Nonresidential uses that generate more than 1,500 gallons of wastewater per day, as determined by the Lake County Health Department, shall be allowed only when served by community sewer facilities.
