    6         (2) This section serves no other purpose and may not be
    7  codified in the Florida Statutes. At the time of filing this
    8  rule for adoption, or as soon thereafter as practicable, the
    9  department shall publish a notice of the enactment of this

   14  the rule cited. This section does not cure any rulemaking defect
   15  or preempt any challenge based on a lack of authority or a
   16  violation of the legal requirements governing the adoption of
   17  any rule cited.
   18         Section 2. Subsection (11) is added to section 381.00651,
   19  Florida Statutes, to read:
   20         381.00651 Periodic evaluation and assessment of onsite
   21  sewage treatment and disposal systems.—
   22         (11)(a) By July 1, 2016, the department, in consultation
   23  with the Department of Health and county governments, must
   24  identify onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems in a
   25  county with a population greater than 200,000 based on the 2010
   26  Census which, in the determination of the department, may have
   27  an adverse impact on the water quality of the Santa Fe River or
   28  the Ichetucknee River, including the tributaries. Within 60 days
   29  after the department’s completion of the identification of these
   30  systems, the department shall provide the location of these
   31  systems to the county in which these systems are located. Within
   32  1 year after the identification of these systems and in
   33  consultation with the department, the county in which the
   34  systems are located shall develop an onsite sewage treatment and
   35  disposal system remediation plan. For each onsite sewage
   36  treatment and disposal system or group of systems, the plan must
   37  include whether the systems require upgrading, connection to a
   38  central sewerage system, or no action. The plan must also
   39  include a priority ranking for each system or group of systems
   40  which requires remediation.
   41         (b) Each remediation plan must be submitted to the
   42  department for approval. In reviewing and approving the
   43  remediation plans, the department shall consider, at a minimum,
   44  all of the following:
   45         1. The density of the onsite sewage treatment and disposal
   46  systems.
   47         2. The number of onsite sewage treatment and disposal
   48  systems.
   49         3. The proximity of the onsite sewage treatment and
   50  disposal system or systems to the Santa Fe River or the
   51  Ichetucknee River.
   52         4. The estimated nutrient loading of the onsite sewage
   53  treatment and disposal system or systems.
   54         5. The cost of the proposed remedial action.
   55         Section 3. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.
