Amend Regulations Following Periodic Review
||The Regulations for Alternative Onsite Sewage Systems (AOSS Regulations) (12VAC5-613) became effective December 7, 2011. As required by Executive Order 14 amended (2018) and §§ 2.2-4007.1 and 2.2-4017 of the Code of Virginia, VDH must conduct a periodic review of the regulations every four years.
