Sustainable Growth & Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012 Implementation​​

​​The Sustainable Growth & Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012 Four tiers pie chart(the septics law) limits the spread of septic systems on large-lot residential development to reduce the last unchecked major source of nitrogen pollution into Chesapeake Bay and other waterways. By mapping future growth in "tiers," the law seeks greater accountability and predictability.

MDP is providing this web application as part of the department's technical assistance role that SB 236 describes. The web application provides the key components for local jurisdictions to create the tier map. MDP is available to help jurisdictions that might need guidance in compiling a composite Tier map from these data.
