(A) (1) Every subdivision with lots of such size as to require a public sewer system under the provisions of this chapter or the zoning regulations or the regulations of the state or the county shall be provided with a community sanitary sewer system connected to a county or municipal system or to an adequate community sewerage disposal plant meeting the requirements of the state and the county.
(2) If connected to a county or municipal system, sewers shall be constructed to meet the standards and requirements of such system and shall become a part thereof without cost to the county or municipality.
(3) If built as an independent system, an arrangement, approved by the County Attorney, shall be made for ownership and operation.
(B) Where a public sewerage system will not be available, private on-site means of sewage disposal meeting the requirements of the State Department of Health shall be provided; and, in addition, the Department of Health and/or the agent may require the installation and capping of sanitary sewer mains and house connections where plans for central sewer systems have been prepared and where evaluation of such plans indicates that public sewer service will be necessary in the reasonably foreseeable future to protect public health.
(C) The agent shall not approve any subdivision where sanitary sewers are not provided unless the agent shall receive in writing from the Health Department a statement to the effect that the area contained in the subdivision is generally satisfactory for the installation of septic tanks and drainfields, and that they will not, so far as can be determined, create hazards to water quality or public health, and that such approval by the agent is only with the understanding that where septic tanks and drainfields are to be installed, these must be approved on an individual lot basis by the Health Department.
