|Septic System Guide|
Our Summer Septic Re-Inspection Program
Most sewage disposal systems in Gravenhurst are regulated through the Ontario Building Code and could have a negative impact on the environment if not properly maintained.
During the months of May, June, July, and August the Town of Gravenhurst runs a Septic re-inspection program throughout the municipality.The objective of the program is to help keep our lakes and ground water pollution free.
One way we can achieve this is by working together with property owners, providing information awareness pertaining to their sewage disposal systems. We collect and share field data pertaining to sewage systems in the Gravenhurst area.
During the re-inspection of sewage systems numerous observations may be noted:
The way you treat your septic system will influence how long the system lasts and how well it functions. Depending on the use of the system a septic tank should be pumped out every 3 to 5 years.
The following Check List Guide was compiled from 421 sewage systems inspected in Gravenhurst during 2011.
