Homeowners in Cali cling to their septic tanks

Thousands of Los Angeles homeowners with septic tanks could be forced to connect to the city’s sewer line or repair or replace their systems under a newly proposed ordinance.

The proposal by the Department of Public Works would require that owners of the city’s 11,643 septic tanks buy annual permits, replace malfunctioning tanks or connect to the sewers.
