If an individual, on-site sewage disposal system, (septic or cesspool), is failing or not operating properly, the public may report the condition. The property owner is responsible for maintaining all building systems in good working condition.

Private, on-site sewage disposal systems are installed when a public sanitary or public combined sewer is not available.

What Happens Next

The Department of Buildings issues violations when appropriate.
