A licensed installer is responsible for the following items when installing a subsurface sewage disposal unit in the Town of Ashland:
Any changes (alterations) that are made to the original approved subsurface sewage disposal plot plan are to be approved by the Ashland Board of Health. The engineer is to be contacted before presenting any changes to the Department.
The installer is responsible for understanding all regulations (state and local) for subsurface sewage disposal unit installations. Regulations can be obtained at the Ashland Board of Health office for a small fee.
The as-builts are to be submitted for final construction and finish grading. The inspections for the final construction and finish grading are to be submitted before the Board of Health conducts the inspections. (See Article I, Procedure for As-Builts.)
There are plans that require twenty-four-inch manholes, built to within one (1) foot of the finish grading, over the inlet and outlet ties of the septic tank. Please be aware of these requirements before installation and purchase of the septic tank.
Inspection of the subsurface sewage disposal tank is to be in accordance with the local regulations (Rules and Regulations Governing the Subsurface Disposal of Sewage; see Article III) adopted by the Ashland Board of Health.
