With any type of sewage system, it is your responsibility if it fails and causes an environmental pollution.
Property owners can be prosecuted and fined for failing to monitor this.
Follow the manufacturer's advice on servicing and maintenance and you must keep records of work done to empty, maintain or repair your septic tank or sewage treatment plant, eg invoices, bills or receipts.
You must also keep a written record of any:
- accidents you’ve had with your equipment or incidents that could have led to an accident
- problems you’ve had with your equipment, how you dealt with them and what you’re doing to prevent the same problems happening again
- complaints you’ve received about your equipment and how you resolved them
Roe Environmental can tailor a pre-planned maintenance schedule to help you with this.
