Did You Get A Postcard? Then Your Septic Tank Is Due For A Pump Out

The WPCC has mailed out notices to inform residents about servicing their septic system which needs to be done every 5 years.

 

Have you received your postcard from the Town of Clinton's Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCC) about on-site sewage disposal?  Have you scheduled your pump-out?

If you received a postcard, your septic needs to be pumped. If it's been pumped within the last five years and you still received a postcard, you need to update your file.

The WPCC is sending out notices to inform residents about servicing their septic systems. The town has enacted an ordinance in accordance with a Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) consent order requiring that all septic systems in the Town of Clinton be cleaned and inspected every five years.  The town is using an on-line tracking system called Carmody, which will facilitate this process. 

If you received a post card, please schedule an appointment with a town-registered and licensed septic system service company (see list below) within 60 days.   

If your tank was serviced in the past five years and you received a post card, then the town does not have a record of the service. 

WPCC is updating its database and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please contact your septic service company and ask them to update your service on Carmody, the online tracking system.

For more information, look to the town's website or call the WPCC office at 860-669-9349.

The septic remediation costs begin -- after they push through the $65 million dollar new school. It gets worse..

Why are they now regulating our pump outs? This information isn't even correct. If you have a big family using a lot of water, depending on the size of your tank, you may need a pump out every three years.

They have always regulated pump outs. If your home was built recently the tank size would have been spec'd properly via building codes to accommodate the number of occupants or rather bedrooms. Five years is just considered a rule of thumb.

I have more of an issue with what seems like they are forcing us to use specific companies. We have been using another company not on this list for generations, we are not changing now. I will simply send them a copy of the bill to update their files with if I get a post card.

The list was just a reference for those who need it. Killingworth does the same thing. Important issue as a homeowner is to do the maintenance to avoid costly repairs. Cheap insurance
