The Wicomico County Council is set to take up how to implement the state’s new septic system law at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The law requires the county to divide up the land into four zones that would restrict the use of septic systems.

Council President Joe Holloway told the Salisbury Daily Times that members of the Planning and Z

Zoning Department will map out how the plan might negatively impact landowners.

The main contention will be over the fourth tier that would only allow minor subdivision of seven or few homes which would limit what farmers could do with their land.

The state deadline is December 31st.
