Local regulatory agencies can effectively control individual waste treatment and disposal systems, provided they enforce ordinances and regulations designed to provide protection of water quality and the public health. This Chapter is intended to prescribe the local implementation necessary to tailor the provision of the Water Quality Control Plan to the operations of the county. If any section or portion of any section of this Chapter is found to be in conflict with any provisions of the Water Quality Control Plan for the Northcoast region, said plan shall prevail. Nothing in this Chapter is intended nor shall it be construed to transfer ownership, operational or financial responsibility for any on-site sewage disposal system to the County of Del Norte or any department or agency thereof.
