Maine DEP Requires All OBD Treatment Plants Must Be On A Service Contract

Septic Preservation Services have overboard discharge (OBD) services and OBD repairs scheduled today in Harrison, Hebron, Bridgton, Lewiston, West Paris, Turn and Auburn Maine. The Maine DEP’s Overboard Discharge (OBD) Program is responsible for regulating discharges of sanitary and household wastewater generated at residential or commercial locations to streams, rivers, bays, and the ocean. All OBDs must be approved by the DEP through a licensing process. DEP rule requires all mechanical OBD treatment systems to have an operating alarm system; to maintain a current service contract with a licensed service contractor; and to attach a service tag on or near the treatment system that provides the service contractor’s name and the last date of service. All mechanical systems require power, so be sure that power is supplied to the unit and that it is turned on 7 days a week during the season of use.
