    House committee substitute makes the following changes to 1st edition. Rewrites and reorganizes provisions of previous edition as follows. Creates new subsection (g1) to GS 130A-343 allowing a manufacturer of a wastewater trench system to petition the Commission for Public Health (Commission) to have a wastewater trench system approved as an innovative wastewater system as provided in the subsection. Directs the Commission to approve a wastewater trench system as an innovative wastewater system if there is clear and convincing evidence that the wastewater system is functionally equivalent to a wastewater trench system that is approved as an accepted wastewater system. Details the performance requirements necessary for the Commission to find a wastewater trench system is the functional equivalent to an accepted wastewater trench system. Details the information the manufacturer must provide to the Commission in its petition. Clarifies that approval of a wastewater trench system as an innovative wastewater system (was, an accepted wastewater system) is not conditioned on the manufacturer of the wastewater trench system having operational systems installed in North Carolina. Directs the Commission to authorize the use of a wastewater trench system as an innovative wastewater system in the same applications as an accepted wastewater trench system. Forbids the Commission from including conditions and limitations in the approval of a wastewater trench system as an innovative wastewater system that are not included in the approval of the accepted wastewater system. Changes title to AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE COMMISSION FOR PUBLIC HEALTH TO APPROVE AS AN INNOVATIVE WASTEWATER SYSTEM ANY WASTEWATER TRENCH SYSTEM THAT IS DETERMINED BY THE COMMISSION TO BE FUNCTIONALLY EQUIVALENT TO AN ACCEPTED WASTEWATER TRENCH SYSTEM.
    Deletes amendment to GS 130A-343(h), and states that the act becomes effective when it becomes law (was, the act applies to wastewater systems designated by the Commission on or after the date the act becomes law).
