Installing a new septic system at a building site or replacing an existing septic system is a big undertaking. Part of this process involves obtaining the proper permits and inspections from the local municipality and submitting a detailed site plan that showcases all of the features on the property being developed as part of the project.
If you have ever installed a new septic system at a building site before, you know that getting the proper municipal authority out to inspect the site can take time, and because of scheduling and holdups, this can even delay the construction process. To streamline the permitting process, the Florida Senate has proposed a bill that would give home and business owners the option to work with a Master Septic Contractor or Certified Environmental Health Professional of their choosing. This would help expedite the septic building and replacement process and allow home and business owners to work with a septic professional they already know and trust.
Our owner and founder, Greg Mayfield, R.S., M.S.C., C.E.H.P., has worked for the Florida Department of Health as a septic inspector, and he is excited to help home and business owners directly with this new process. Greg and the rest of our team at Southern Water and Soil recognize that septic inspections are an essential part of the building or replacement process because they ensure these systems are up to code to promote proper functionality and longevity of the septic and drain field system. If you have any questions about this new Senate bill and how it could impact your septic building or replacement project, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
