How long do I have to get the inspection and pumping complete?

Technically, if you have not had your system inspected or pumped within the last three years, you are not in compliance with the Ordinance and may be subject to a fine. 

The Town understands that this may be new information to many property owners and is not, at this time, intent on imposing fines. Please comply as soon as you possibly can!
