Important Winter Septic Inspection Information

Posted to Building, Services on Nov 23, 2018

Winter weather affects on-site sewage installation and inspection. 

The Municipality of Highlands East does not conduct septic inspections during the winter months. If the ground is frozen, or there is snow on the ground, the conditions are not conducive to conduct a proper inspection. When the temperatures begin to drop, call the Building Department to ensure you can obtain an inspection.

The function and design of on-site sewage systems are highly dependent on construction practices and the proper classification of the native soil on which the system is built. For these reasons, The Municipality of Highlands East does not conduct test pit inspections to issue sewage permits, or installation inspections during the winter months.

In urgent circumstances, such as a failing system exceptions can be made. Call the Building Department at 705-447-0051.
