Abstract
The paper reviews four surveys of state onsite sewage disposal regulations from 1949 to 1980 and identifies the changes and trends of these changes. The physical meaning of various state regulatory requirements are analyzed against the present scientific knowledge. The primary conclusions are that a wide variability exists between state codes, more flexible codes with better trained staffs are more effective, and overly restrictive codes cannot substitute for unskilled personnel.
