Inspection Request for an Existing Sewage System
The Environmental staff evaluates existing onsite wastewater treatment systems as requested by lending institutions, Real Estate Agents, and Prospective Buyers. Many lenders require that the sewage system is operating properly before lending money on a property.


1. Ensure the septic tank is open for the initial inspection and hydraulic load test. The hydraulic load test must be conducted before the septic tank is "pumped out."
2. Coordinate schedules so that the septic tank Pumping Contractor and the Inspector arrive at the same time.
3. Ensure that the Requester, Owner, or Agent are present to allow access inside the house.
4. Monitor plumbing fixtures during the hydraulic load test to ensure that overflow doesn't occur.
