Welcome to the official website of the Pennsylvania Association of Sewage Enforcement Officers (PASEO).
PASEO was established as a 501(c)(6) professional association in 1986 by Sewage Enforcement Officers (SEOs) from across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PASEO’s founders recognized a need for interaction and cooperation among the many Sewage Enforcement Officers and between the organization and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
PASEO’s goals are to:
- Encourage and maintain the highest standards of professional ethics and practices;
- Sponsor and promote educational programs for members and the public;
- Provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas;
- Act on behalf of its members in connection with legislative and regulatory proposals concerning the SEO community.
Over the years, PASEO has grown from an idea shared by a handful of SEOs to a vibrant and growing organization. Our membership is organized into six regional chapters corresponding, roughly, to the areas served by the Department of Environmental Protection’s six regional offices. This has enabled and fostered a communications link between PASEO and DEP on both the state and regional level.
Having been appointed by the Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, PASEO is an active member in the state’s Sewage Advisory Committee and has helped to craft numerous pieces of legislation and regulation.
PASEO’s Annual Conference and Trade Show is the Commonwealth’s premier educational opportunity for Sewage Enforcement Officers and all others involved in the on-lot sewage industry.
Whether you are a certified Sewage Enforcement Officer, a public health official, engineer, planner, or just interested in the Pennsylvania on-lot sewage program, we encourage you to join PASEO.
