Open Discharges

An Open Discharge or Jet System is a wastewater disposal system. The wastewater is pumped from your septic tank to the surface on your property without any treatment. Due to the disposal at surface, the discharge area must be away from any high traffic areas on the property. These systems are only allowed on large parcels. Open discharges do not provide any wastewater (septic) treatment and offer no protection to the environment.
