Professionals in the industry of wastewater management such as designers and installers are regulated by Alberta Municipal Affairs through the Safety Codes Council. These government bodies mandate the Alberta Private Sewage Regulations to which all trained and certified professional must adhere to.
The majority of Municipal Districts and Counties within Alberta have adopted the current Private Sewage Systems Standards of Practice and will only issue permits for onsite wastewater systems if they are in harmony with such.
The Ministry of Health regulates this industry in BC. Professionals follow the British Columbia Sewerage System Regulation and British Columbia Standard of Practice.
