Septic Compliance Inspection Certificate

Minnesota Septic Contractors that are Licensed Designers or Inspectors by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency MPCA are able to do Septic Compliance Inspections prior to transfer of property.


Point of Sale Certificate of Compliance

If you have a purchase agreement for an Isanti home and that home uses a septic sewer system then you must have a Septic Compliance Inspection report sent to the building department prior to the sale. A Certificate of Compliance (COC) is required unless a valid exception is agreed upon.


Non Compliant Septic Systems

Occupancy of a property found to have a Non-Compliant Septic System is still possible if the city building official approves of the agreement for improvements. A plan for corrective actions to Repair, Upgrade or Replace the failing system can be written up by a MPCA Licensed Septic Designer like CSI Custom Septic, Inc.
