What is Sewer System Inspection All About?

All rural Minnesota homes, cabins and businesses with a Private Septic System must stay in compliance with regulations put in place by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). These rules were set up to Protect Human Health and Safety along with our valuable Natural Resources. Imagine the sheer mess, expense and danger of having a Sewage Leak in your home or yard.


Why HaveĀ A Compliance Inspection?

Having a properly functioning Home Sewer System just so happens to protect the investment that you have in your home. This is one reason that mortgage lenders often require a Septic Compliance Inspection before authorizing a home loan. Another reason is that exposure to a Raw Sewage Spill can cause great harm to your health.


Who Might Need a Septic Compliance Inspection?

A Septic System Compliance Inspection provides a good evaluation of the current state of the entire sewage and wastewater treatment operation on a property. Your Certified Inspector will issue either a Certificate of Compliance (COC) or a Notice of Non Compliance (NON).

  1. Home Sellers
  2. Home Buyers
  3. Mortgage Lenders
  4. Bedroom Additions
  5. New Home Construction
  6. Septic System Upgrades
  7. Suspected Malfunctioning Septic Systems


Certificates Of Compliance or Non Compliance

Receiving a Certificate of Compliance (COC) indicates that your sewer system is currently compliant with all related state regulations. The certificate is valid for 3 years for an existing private sewage system.

Receiving a Notice of Noncompliance (NON) is more problematic. It means that the septic system failed to meet state mandated requirements when it was inspected. You will be told what is needed in order to bring the system up to code and the timeframe in which to have it completed.
