Background

The City is responsible for administering Minnesota Rules Chapter 7080 related to Individual Sewage Treatment Systems (ISTS). The City currently has approximately 4,200 of these systems within the community. Generally speaking, owners of these systems must check for leaks through visual evidence and measure or remove certain accumulations at a frequency no less than every three (3) years. The rules specify the terms when certain material shall be removed. Owners may contact their sewage handler to determine when these accumulations must be removed.
