12VAC5-570-130. Location.

Owners shall conveniently locate their sewerage facilities within 500 feet walking distance from the shore end of any dock the facilities are intended to serve. On a case-by-case basis the division may approve a greater distance if unusual circumstances, such as topography or resource protection areas, prevent compliance with this requirement. The division may require the owner to provide sewerage facilities in more than one location in order to meet the needs of the particular site. In addition, the division may require additional fixtures, beyond the minimum number specified in Table 1 (12VAC5-570-150), if it determines that additional fixtures are necessary to accommodate the site layout and use of the marina, other places where boats are moored, or boating access facility.
