Septic Systems

All septic systems constructed in the Town of West Boylston must be permitted by the Board of Health and inspected by the board or its agent.  

The Board of Health is the primary regulatory body responsible for septic systems.  The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection oversees the local implementation of Title 5 and provides us with technical assistance and training. Please visit the MassDEP pages on Septic Systems and Title 5 for more information.

The design for all septic systems must be reviewed by the Board of Health and its agent to ensure compliance with all standards.
