A change of use application is needed when the use of a wastewater system is proposed to be changed to a higher strength wastewater, industrial process wastewater, or a use that is not consistent with the permitted use.
High-strength wastewater requires a higher level of treatment and a more stringent soil and site evaluation. A system designed for domestic wastewater, such as a single-family home or office building has not been designed to handle the wastewater from a restaurant.
