How do I locate my septic system?
Current State Code requires all septic tanks to have a riser to the ground surface. So most newer systems and many older ones will have an exposed septic tank lid in the yard. The effluent sewer line will exit the septic tank and lead to the distribution box which then leads to the absorption field. If you cannot locate the septic tank, the Health Department will do a records search if you can give us an address. All of our newer permits and some of the older ones have construction plans which will show the locations of the components. If there is not a permit on file in the Health Department, we suggest calling a septic inspector to help you locate the system.
