Septic Inspections 

House Bill 426 relative to shoreland septic systems is strongly supported by NH LAKES as an opportunity to improve water quality in New Hampshire’s lakes by identifying underperforming and uninspected septic systems. The proposed bill requires assessment at the time of sale for certain septic systems on properties within the developed waterfront. The bill would require inspection of septic systems installed prior to the state permitting process, or systems whose approval is over 20 years old, and copies would need be filed with the local health official and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.
