Status of ‘Best Available Technology’ Regulations for New Construction
Governor Larry Hogan recently called to remove the requirement for "Best Available Technology" (BAT) units in place of septic tanks for new construction outside the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area. The process to change these regulations could take several months. Until then, current regulations still require BAT units on new construction in most of Cecil County.
