    What do the inspectors look for?


    Answer:

    The inspection will cover a number of aspects relating to 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:

    • some kind of primary treatment unit (septic tank) in good repair and functional
    • some kind of absorption or evaporation system in good repair and functional (unless the system is a non-discharging vault)
    • a maintenance contract for any mechanical systems and
    • most importantly, the existing individual sewage disposal system must have sufficient treatment capacity for the proposed additional wastewater flow.
