No authority for conventional operators or installers.

§ 54.1-2301 provides statutory authority for adopting regulations for the licensure of onsite soil evaluators, operators of alternative onsite sewage systems and installers of alternative onsite sewage systems. Onsite soil evaluators are to be of at least two classes, one of which is conventional.

There is no statutory authority for licensure or regulatory oversight related to conventional installers or conventional operators. The proposed regulation exceeds the Board's statutory authority in this matter.
