If a system is relatively new, will the system still need a compliance inspection?
If the County has accurate soil information, a valid permit and the system was inspected when permitted, a full compliance inspection may not be needed. The County may be able to issue a building permit as long as the system is not currently discharging to the soil surface. If there is no soil information, no permit was issued or there appears to be discrepancies between the soil information, a compliance inspection shall be done.
