SSTS Talking Tour coming to town

The MPCA is again hosting meetings across Minnesota where local SSTS program administrators and staff can ask questions, raise issues and discuss policy matters with the MPCA’s SSTS staff. Last year, 112 jurisdictions were represented at the meetings. We are hoping for a similar turnout in 2014.


Encourage cities to add septage storage when upgrading

The MPCA’s January 2012 Program Management Decision on Septage Storage opened the door for local permitting of septage storage up to 50,000 gallons.

We are aware that some counties have begun issuing these permits, and that there have been questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact MCPA staff or the web site if there are any concerns or questions. 

Also, please encourage cities that are upgrading treatment plants within the county to consider adding a septage/holding tank receiving station as part of their upgrade.
