18VAC160-40 for onsite professionals still lacks specificity

Add new regulations that govern the practice of onsite sewage system operators, onsite sewage system installers, and onsite soil evaluators to ensure minimally-qualified individuals meet requirements for licensure that are more aligned with current true-to-life education and experience of new and renewing applicants and updating certain standards of practice as they relate to the industry.

Recommend the Board further separate the interests of operators, designers, and installers into distinct chapters recognizing the requirements and unique knowledge, skills, and abilities of each profession.
