Septic tanks and sewer systems. Provides that the Indiana department of environmental management (IDEM) may not require a county to join or form a regional sewage district to provide sewer service to an unincorporated area of the county unless IDEM determines that the population density of the unincorporated area exceeds the minimum population density at which property owners in an unincorporated area of the county may be required to discontinue septic system use. Requires the legislative body of a county that contains unincorporated areas to adopt an ordinance establishing the minimum population density at which property owners in an unincorporated area of the county may be required to discontinue septic system use. Provides that a regional sewage district may not require a property owner to connect to a sewer system if the property is: (1) located in an unincorporated area; and (2) served by a septic system that is, as determined by local health department, functioning satisfactorily. Establishes an optional alternative billing method for campground sewage service. Authorizes the Indiana utility regulatory commission to resole certain disputes concerning campground sewage service charges. Prohibits the adoption or enforcement of an ordinance that would require a residential property owner to install a new septic system or update an existing septic system under certain circumstances.
