Operations and Maintenance Inspections
On-site septic programs have been established in many counties around the country to protect public health. These “O&M” programs sometimes known as “M&M” programs are in place to ensure that existing on-site sewage systems are properly maintained and functioning. These minimum standards have been developed to reduce the risk of contaminating drinking, ground, and surface waters, as well as reduce the risk of public exposure to untreated sewage.
Dano’s Septic has certified operation & maintenance technicians who are specialists and will verify that your system is operating within its design parameters to meet the requirements of the local jurisdictions including most ATU systems. They also complete the necessary paperwork required by your county and take care of all county submissions as well.
What we do during an O&M Septic Inspection
- Determine sludge, scum and liquid levels in each of the compartments of all tanks in the system, determining if pumping is needed.
- Check operation and dosing of any pumps in the system.
- Inspect drain field area.
- Ensure that all components are in good working condition.
