Like many communities, Newark and Licking County faced a serious problem with septic tank wastes disposal problems. Improper applications posed a health threat to citizens and the environment. In 1990 the City of Newark and Licking County Health Departments passed legislation to prevent disposal of septic waste by land application and required all waste to be stabilized before ultimate disposal on agricultural land. To facilitate these new regulations the City of Newark, Wastewater Treatment Plant began a program to accept trucked wastes into the treatment plant for proper disposal. The regulations set up by the city to accept Trucked Wastes include a manifest disposal system, permitting of haulers and trucked waste operator's licenses. For more detailed information on these regulations refer to City of Newark Ordinance (98-48) or contact the Wastewater Treatment Plant @ 740-349-6768.
