Typical time delays associated with processing applications for a Permit to discharge municipal-type sewage under the existing regulatory system can extend from one to three years. This length of delay can impose costs and barriers to private residential land development. One of the objectives of the proposed Draft 4.1 Municipal Sewage Regulation is to streamline the authorization process for municipal sewage discharges, thus eliminating or reducing excessive delays for developers. The purpose of this study is to analyze how the proposed Draft 4.1 Municipal Sewage Regulation will affect private residential development from the standpoint of business implications (monetary and time costs or savings) when compared to the existing permitting system.
