What are the Regulations for a Septic System?its a long list of Regulations Sewage System Regulations --> Health Authority Riperian Act
Why do we need to comply to these regulations? We used to just put drain pipe in and be done with it!Yep, and systems failed, and because it was all underground, as long as it didnt smell in my backyard, its all good right? Wrong, failed systems pollute your neighbours drinking water and BC Health Officers have the obligation to ticket and fine property owners up to xxx$ per day who have failed sewage systems! , xx % of the populaiton in BC live near water, because of Polluted rinking water sources neighbours got sick,
How will Health Officers know if my system failed?If there is a suspicion of a health violation, Health Officers have the right to enter your property without your permission to investigate, and with the use of dyes in the toilet, they can easily track down where the wastewater came from to issue fines. If you suspect an issue, call an Authourized Maintenance Person to come and asses the problem and put together a plan to fix it.
