Who is responsible for maintaining a record of the layout of private citizen’s septic system to be sure their system meets regs?
We had a water test come back from Endyne as positive for E. coli. As a matter of course we of course thought of our nearest neighbor as leaking human fecal matter into our driven well system.
Upon calling the town to find out what kind of septic system our neighbor has, the town indicated that they did not have a record because of the age of the system.
We talked to several individuals familiar with driven wells and ended up shocking our system in the manner suggested and also took the latest sample sent to Endyne as advised by the individuals we spoke with, and we just got the latest result as being negative and the water is OK to drink.
However, we still find it unusual that there appears to be no record to our neighbor’s septic system lay out. ????
Just for information purposes, what would our course of action be if the latest water sample had proved to be positive for E. coli?
