    What do the inspectors look for?


    The inspection covers a number of aspects that relate to both the structural integrity of all systems components, site conditions and operational status of the system. To be approved, an individual sewage disposal system must have:

    1. some kind of primary treatment unit (septic or aeration tank) in good repair and functional;
    2. some kind of absorption or evaporation system in good repair and functional (unless the system is a nondischarging vault), and
    3. a maintenance contract for any mechanical systems.
