I accidentally damaged some components of my septic system. Who should I call to inspect and repair the damage? Do I need a permit?
In this situation it would be best to have the system evaluated by a licensed septic contractor. If the damage is relatively minor such as damage to a single pipe, it likely will not require a permit, but the repair will need be done by a licensed contractor, and all repairs will need to be inspected by Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) prior to being covered. If the damage is more extensive such as damage to the tank or the soil treatment area (STA), it may require a repair permit. Consult with your contractor.
