This bill, introduced by Senator Regine Biscoe-Lee, seeks to prohibit any further use of septic tanks on certain lots located in the groundwater protection zone regardless of whether said lots are part of parental subdivisions. The realtors have expressed concern regarding this measure as it will unintentionally hurt families that intend to conduct a Parental Subdivision, and prevent any further development of these lots. If enacted, this mandate will also cause the price of real property to increase.
