Staff: Megan Bullock and Molly Carey. Others: No others present. I. CALL TO ORDER: 10:47 am II.AGENDA: The agenda was approved. III. NEW BUSINESS: a. Septic Variance: Megan presented a memo to the Health Board requesting a variance from Jefferson County's Wastewater Treatment Regulations. The variance would allow for a septic permit for a parcel located off McKeown Lane in Cardwell. The landowner submitted an application to FEMA for a Letter of Map Amendment and it was determined that a portion of the property is not considered to be Zone A but rather Zone C floodplain.This change in the floodplain designation allows for the issuance of a septic permit; however, per the Administrative Rules of Montana, a variance must be requested. The Project Engineer from C&H Engineering and Surveying, Inc. provided a response to each of the criteria and has demonstrated that granting the variance will not cause a public health hazard,violate any laws or regulations governing water pollution or wastewater treatment and disposal,or degrade state waters. In consulting with DEQ representatives,the engineer's proposal is considered adequate for protecting water quality. Megan recommended that the board grant this variance. Sherrel made a motion to grant the septic variance based on Megan's recommendation. Christina seconded.All in favor, motion carried. Sandy submitted an email indicating support for the variance. VI.
