According to Title 5 regulations, all subsurface disposal systems must be inspected by a state-licensed inspector under the following conditions:
- If there is a change in use, i.e., a single family residence is converted to a shelter or to a business
- If there is an increase in design flow, such as adding a bedroom
- Whenever real estate is sold
A Title 5 Inspection report is good for 2 years. If accompanied by pumping records showing the system has been pumped at least once a year since the last inspection, a title 5 inspection is valid for 3 years.
If you have any questions about the need for an inspection, please contact the Health Department at 508-261-7366.
