Minnesota Septic Compliance
After a professional inspection is performed by the certified Custom Septic Inc. contractor you will receive either a Certificate of Compliance (COC) or a Notice of Non-Compliance (NON). These two terms have been established for the safety and health of the public and environment. The reasons for a professional inspection performed by a licensed and qualified company, such as Custom Septic Inc., can be due to new construction, septic replacement and depending on the local government it may be needed for a home addition. There is no state-wide requirement, it’s important to check with your local government when acquiring or servicing a Subsurface Sewage Treatment System (SSTS).
– Certificate of Compliance
Receiving a Certificate of Compliance does not guarantee anything or act as a warranty of any kind, it is a state regulated certification that is valid for three years. Some local governments require and enforce certifications for a variety of reasons. Getting a COC means the system on your property is performing within the performance standards and it’s currently safe for the health and safety of the public and environment.
– Notice of Non-Compliance
There are two different Notices of Non-Compliance: Imminent Threat to Public Health or Safety and Failing to Protect Ground Water. Each NON will also include a timeframe for repair, upgrade or replacement services which need to be complied with.
