Statutory authority and classes
 

"Direct supervisor" means a licensed waterworks or wastewater works operator who assumes the responsibility of direct supervision

how does direct supervisor only apply to waterworks and wastewaterworks operators?  Operating an onsite system should and does have the same concnerns.  Seperating operators was a grave mistake by this board.

Onsite sewage operators should be added to the "operator" class of professionals, contractors housed with contractors, and soil evaluators/designers should be regulated by existing design professionals.  Direct supervisor must apply to all classes of operators.

suggestion to add "direct supervisor" to all classes of operator licenses.
