Inspections are required at various stages during the installation of a Sewage System. The cost of standard inspections are covered in the cost of your permit. If a repeat inspection is required, additional fees may be applicable. Tatham Engineering Ltd. will normally inspect:
- test holes after they are dug but before any site preparation is started;
- base of leaching bed when excavated, before any fill is placed (not all installations);
- completed installation, all components installed and visible for inspection prior to backfilling; and
- completed construction, after backfilling and house constructed (if applicable).
Once the completed system has been inspected, backfilled and approved, the sewage system may be used.
Please note, under no circumstance may an installation be covered before the required inspections are completed.
