Public wastewater systems shall meet standards and specifications required by state law, as may be administered by the Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). No person may construct, install, or operate an on-site wastewater system where a public wastewater system is available. In the event a public wastewater system becomes available in an area previously served by individual on-site wastewater systems, an amortization schedule should be determined to bring all effected properties into compliance, and the property owner shall be required to remove or reclaim the old system and hook into the public wastewater system (ARSD 74:53:01:07, SDCL §§ 9-54-10 and 9-48).
