Section 84
 

Section 18VAC160-20-84 is a new section that creates an interim license for individuals who have been practicing as onsite sewage system installers and operators prior to the effective date of the regulations. Standards have been proposed that should allow those who are currently practicing to continue lawful practice after the effective date of the amendments under an interim license.

I think the interim license should be expanded to include those who have at least one year of full-time experience inspecting onsite sewage systems or owner who have been operating and maintaining their own system.  The rules do not seem to contemplate how many systems a person has operated for the operator license so perhaps owners who have been operating their own system can apply for an interim license already.  I would like the regulations to be more clear that their is not a limit on the number of systems one has to have operated for the interim license.
