Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality administers regulations for waste water and waste water treatment systems. Construction of a municipal treatment work, non-industrial waste water treatment system, or other sewage treatment works requires permits from the Department. These permits may only be issued to a public entity unless all components of the proposed system, including the service lines, are or will be located on property that is owned by the owner of the system or dedicated to the owner of the system in a recorded easement for the installation and operation of the system. Small public sewage treatment or individual sewage treatment systems must comply with requirements prescribed by the Environmental Quality Board, determined through inspection performed by the Department of Environmental Quality or a person authorized by the Department.
