Septic Compliance Inspection Failure In Clearwater MN

Individual Septic Sewage Systems in Clearwater MN rely on Bacteria, Water and Soil to safely dispose of sewage. A breakdown or failure in the system is often not immediately noticed but is subsequently found during a septic compliance inspection. A septic system failure poses a danger to human health and to the environment. If your Clearwater MN septic system starts to fall apart, it can have a huge impact on your life and wallet.

Reasons For Septic Compliance Inspections 

There are several reasons for the need of a septic system compliance inspection.

  • Required by many Local Government Units (LGUs), which are Counties, Townships or Cities, upon transfer of property.
  • When a Complaint is received by LGU.
  • As part of a Survey of a particular area.
  • When a Spill happens.
  • Applying for a permit to build a New Home.
  • Addition of Another Bedroom onto current home.
  • Requested by a Real Estate Agent, Purchaser of Property or Mortgage Lender when completing a Property Sale.

Why Didn’t I Notice A Problem With My Clearwater MN Septic System?yard pic

It is quite common in Minnesota that during the sale of a property, a septic compliance inspection is requested. Often times the current homeowners have lived at the property for many years without having issues with their private septic system. Over the years they have raised children who grow up and move out of the home.

As families grow, mature and move out, household demand for water tends to diminish. With less wastewater being sent into the septic sewage system, it appears to be working fine.

Now, when its time for a New Family to move in and enjoy this Clearwater MN, family home, the increased water usage from a larger, growing family quickly stresses an older septic system and problems begin to surface.

Subsurface Sewage Treatment System (SSTS) Codes

Many private Clearwater MN, septic systems were installed long ago. Older systems were put in before advancements in wastewater treatment. These outdated systems were originally designed to contain sewage, not to treat sewage. Older materials were not as durable and SSTS were too small and installed too deeply.

New Septic System Codes were adopted to protect human safety concerns and also to protect our beloved Minnesota Environment. We want to ensure that Clearwater MN lives up to its name.
