New Loudoun County Law Requires Septic System Inspection Before July 1, 2009
If you live in Loudoun County, Virginia, and you're the owner of a non-conventional septic system, you are required to have your septic system inspected before July 1, 2009.
Non-conventional systems include peat filters, sand filters, ATU's, drip, low pressure, and spray. Manufactures names include Advantex, Aquarobic, Puraflo, Eco-Flo, Whitewater, FAST, BEST, American Drip, and Geoflo, etc. If you have one of these systems it is most likely that you have a non-conventional system and if you did not receive a letter from the Health Department, call the Loudoun County Health Department at 703-777-0234.
Failure to maintain an onsite system can cause partially treated or raw sewage to surface on the ground creating an unsanitary condition. This effect may be local or may extend for miles in certain cases. Non-conventional onsite systems typically cost two to four times that of a conventional onsite system. If these systems are not maintained, repairs can be costly, which is why we at SES recommend annual maintenance. We're pleased to offer various maintenance plans to meet different budgets. Call SES today to schedule an inspection of your existing septic tank. For more information on SES maintenance plans click here.
