New septic systems as well as upgraded septic
systems do not necessarily require a permit from the Adirondack Park Agency but they must meet their regulations. Therefore
a Jurisdictional Inquiry needs to be filed to obtain a non-jurisdictional determination. Depending on the property location
certain new or upgraded septic systems will require a permit from the Agency. If the septic system does not meet
their regulations a variance will need to be approved by the APA Board of Commissioners.
All septic sytems
need to follow the guidelines as set forth by the NYS Department of Health and will require a permit from the local town/village
