Repair and Replacement of Existing Septic Systems
When an existing septic system is repaired or replaced, the necessary soil testing must be conducted by either a Sanitarian or an independent engineer. A septic system design is developed based on the soil test data and other design criteria. A septic system permit is then issued based on the specifications shown on the plan. Unlike a septic system for new construction, exceptions to the Public Health Code may be granted to repair a septic system due to on-site limitations. In all cases the building owner must contract the services of a septic system installer currently licensed in the State of Connecticut to perform the septic system installation.
