  • Selling Your Property

    Meet septic system requirements before you do.

    Get your septic system pumped and inspected before you sell your property. After the Health Department inspection, we issue a Report of System Status (RSS) which:

    • States the condition of the system at the time of inspection.
    • Includes information about the septic system and any minor deficiencies.
    • Includes best practices for long-term septic system care.

    Let’s get started.

    Process to obtain a RSS:

    1. Contact a certified professional. Have your system inspected and the tanks pumped.
    2. Submit your inspection report and RSS application online, by mail or in person.
    3. We review the application and report for problems.

    We recommend you submit your applications early. Once we issue the RSS, it is valid for one year.
