up septic tank rules By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Future residents of Comal County or anyone wanting to plat a lot outside city limits will have to meet new requirements should updated regu lations by the county gain approval from the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Com mission The county is considering stricter requirements regarding platting for the spacing between septic tanks and water wells Currently water wells must have a radius of 150 feet from any septic tank That will not change The county would require developers or anyone wanting to plat a lot show a plan for this spacing ensuring that this distance is maintained The effect although not to officially increase Developments in unincorporated areas would face new standards the oneacre minimum lot size will almost assuredly create need for a larger lot when a water system is not available People had been asking Commissioners Court to increase the minimum lot size from an acre up to something County Engineer Tom Hornseth said Although the county has no authority to regu late where a well is drilled they can regulate spacing around septic tanks through subdivision requirements Were asking that planning be done at platting he said developer or subdivider will show that measures are in This prevents neighbors from putting septic tanks near the property lines within the 150foot radius of a neighbors well If a homeowner should want to revise the plats however that is something that would need to be considered when looking at the final plat Most of the homes in Comal County outside city water supplies still get water from wells and rely on septic tanks Until these areas of the county receive more water systems the regula tions will have an affect especially on new sub divisions Also the lack of a controlling authority such as an underground water conservation district to regulate underground water delays any further control except those of the limited county orders Environmental Health Officer Monica Wal lace said people often drill wells anywhere on their land forcing their neighbor to move a sep tic tank out of the 150foot zone She said the intent is to require future developers to plan for these zones so that no overlapping occurs If approved by the TNRCC these new platting requirements will be debated at a public hearing in the following weeks before coming to Com missioners Court for final approval Call 6259144 for information about subscriptions to the HeraldZeitung
