Septic Systems Maintenance After a Flood Event

General

Residents are urged not to pump septic tanks or holding tanks until normal groundwater levels are reached (i.e. ground is dry) to prevent any damage to septic systems (e.g. displacement of tank).

If the septic system must be used, conserve water as much as possible to allow the system to restore itself as the groundwater level lowers.

Avoid using heavy machinery near the septic system as they are vulnerable to damage under flood conditions.

Procedures to Inspect Functionality of Septic System After a Flood:

1. Once the water returns to normal groundwater levels, the homeowner is encouraged to hire a qualified technician (i.e. a qualified septic pumping company) to assess the proper functioning of the septic system or holding tank.

2. A septic permit will be required if you are installing, replacing, repairing or altering the septic system.

3. A septic system permit application form is available on South Nation Conservation's (SNC) website at www.nation.on.ca under "Find a Form" or contact our office at 1 (877) 984-2948.
