Septic Tank Survey and Reports, Lincolnshire. Regulations – January 2020

Septic Tank Survey and Reports

The rules for septic tanks changed on 1st January 2015 and septic tanks which discharge into a surface water course will no longer be permitted by the Environment Agency after 1st January 2020. If your current system does not meet these standards then you have three options:

  1. Connect into the mains sewerage system,
  2. Install a drainage infiltration system, or;
  3. Replace your septic tank with a fully compliant sewage treatment plant. This plant must meet the required British Standards and be of an appropriate size for the dwelling that it serves in line with British Water

If you are selling your property prior to 1st January 2020 then you may need to replace your system to allow the sale to complete without disruption.

Our specialist team have almost 20 years’ experience in the off mains drainage sector and can provide full advice on this regulatory change, from an initial survey and condition report through to the installation of a new, compliant system. If you are unsure if your current system meets the regulations then please get in touch and we can help to guide you through the process.
