California Assembly Considers Bill Banning RV Holding Tank Chemicals

Serving Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, San Bernardino Counties & Nearby Areas of California

California's legislature is considering a law that would ban the use of six different chemicals in RV holding tanks. The bill, introduced by California Assemblyman Bill Monning, D-Santa Cruz, would ban the use of RV holding tank chemicals that contain bronopol, dowicil, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, paraformaldehyde and para-dichlorobenzene. These six chemicals have been shown to cause damage to some types of septic systems and can poison groundwater supplies.

California has tried to regulate holding tank chemicals before. In 2005, the State Water Resources Control Board notified 25 Southern California parks and campgrounds that they should prohibit RVs from emptying waste into the parks' septic systems. The state also closed at least two state park dump stations after research showed that the formaldehyde in certain RV holding tank chemicals had caused damage to the state park dump stations' septic tanks.
Changes in California laws regulating RVs can reveal safety problems that may have gone unnoticed. The California Lemon Law allows consumers who have serious and irreparable problems with their motor home or RV to receive a full refund or a replacement vehicle.
