Units constructed of concrete block, cinder block, brick or stone shall meet the requirements of the highest standards of masonry construction. Septic tanks shall be constructed on a concrete base at least six inches thick to serve as a foundation and bottom of the unit. Mortar shall be one part portland cement to three parts sand. Two coats (each one-fourth-inch thick) of portland cement-sand plaster or other equivalent sealing mixture shall be applied to the interior walls of a septic tank.
(3) 
Information to be furnished respecting precast and prefabricated septic tanks and distribution boxes and seepage pits.

(d) 
No precast or prefabricated unit shall be installed in any individual sewage disposal system constructed in the Township of East Hanover unless subsequent to the effective date of this chapter the design and construction of such unit shall have been determined by the Board of Health to comply with the requirements of the Standards for the Construction of Sewerage Facilities and the provisions of this chapter. Such determination shall be made only upon the submission to and review by the Board of Health of the structural design of the unit. Structural design data shall show all detail specifications, including dimensions, thickness of walls, strength of material, size, type and location of any access openings and other details sufficient to establish that the unit complies with all requirements of state laws and standards and any applicable requirements of this chapter. Submission to the Board of Health for purposes of the required determination as to any unit may be made in connection with an application for certification as to location or design or may be made at any time by any manufacturer or distributor of precast or prefabricated septic tanks, distribution boxes or seepage pits. In the event that the Board of Health determines that a unit does not meet the applicable requirements, the Board shall furnish to the applicant, manufacturer or distributor a written report stating the specific reasons for such determination.
