12VAC5-640-30. Scope of regulations. Section "D"

As a waterfront property owner, presumably with riparian rights, I should have the right to determine my own waste water disposal method, either soil or discharge, as long as I meet the same effluent standards required of other citizens who dispose of their waste water using standard municipal systems. Why is their soil type not held to this same standard?
