Meet septic system requirements before you do.

Get your septic system pumped and inspected before you sell your property. After the Health Department inspection, we issue a Report of System Status (RSS) which:

  • States the condition of the system at the time of inspection.
  • Includes information about any non-compliance with permitting requirements.
  • Includes best practices for long-term septic system maintenance.

Let's get started.

Process to obtain a RSS:

  1. Contact a certified professional. Have your system inspected and the tanks pumped.
  2. Submit your inspection report and RSS application online, by mail or in person.
  3. We will review the application and report for any problems.
