    The city planner shall not approve any subdivision where sanitary sewers are not provided unless the subdivision is of five (5) lots or less and the city planner receives in writing from the health official, a statement to the effect that the area contained in the subdivision is satisfactory for the installation of septic tanks, and that they will not, so far as can be determined, create hazards to public health. Final approval as to site suitability will be made prior to approval of the plat.
    (a) Greater lot areas may be required or certain lots may be disapproved where individual septic tanks or individual wells are to be used, if the health official determines that there are factors or such as drainage, soil condition, or other conditions to cause potential health problems. Drainfield location shall be approved by the health official.
