What is Title V?
The Massachusetts State Environmental Code, Title V is the regulation governing all septic systems in Massachusetts. The Department of Environmental Protection in conjunction with the local Board of Health, are responsible for enforcing the Title V Code. Title V was originally instituted in 1978 and was revised in 1995. In addition to Title V, the Yarmouth Board of Health, in 1978, promulgated the Town of Yarmouth Sewage Disposal Regulations which are more restrictive than Title V. In order to protect our drinking water and swimming beaches, it is important that all septic systems in Yarmouth conform to our local and state regulations.
