Cesspool Conversion Working Group
The Department of Health (DOH) has been authorized by Act 132 of SLH 2018 to establish a cesspool conversion working group. The purpose of this working group is to develop a long-range, comprehensive plan for cesspool conversion statewide for all cesspools by 2050.
Act 132 provided a list of objectives that will be evaluated by the working group. The group is required to submit an interim report of its preliminary findings and recommendations, including proposed legislation, to the legislature no later than December 31, 2019, and shall submit a final report, including findings, recommendations, and any proposed legislation, to the legislature no later than twenty days prior to the convening of the regular session of 2021.
Proposals for both due on or before June 4, 2019
The Wastewater Branch shall accept written questions regarding this Professional Services RFP. Inquires shall be made in writing by email to Ms. Sina Pruder (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the close of business on May 9, 2019 (telephone calls will not be acknowledged). In order to facilitate a meaningful response, questions should reference the page and section number to which the questions relate.
