All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections today in Attleboro, North Attleboro, Wrentham, Bellingham and Blackstone MA. As stated on the Official website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for Massachusetts:
“Septic system inspections are required
- Within 2 years prior to the sale of the property. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months after the sale.
- When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit. This does not mean an inspection is required every time a building permit is needed – only when the use of the facility changes (e.g., from residential to commercial) or when a facility expands (e.g., adding a bedroom, enlarging the square footage of an office building, or adding seats to a restaurant).
- Unless official records showing location of the system components are available, any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
- For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
- Every 3 years for shared systems.
- When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
- When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection.”
