New Septic Tank Regulations
If you have a septic tank that currently discharges directly into a surface water course such as a ditch, stream or river, you will need to replace or upgrade your treatment system by 1 January 2020, or when you sell your property if before this date.
If the Environment Agency finds evidence that your septic tank is discharging to a surface watercourse and is causing pollution, you will need to replace or upgrade your system earlier than 1 January 2020. You will usually have to do this within 1 year, although this will be agreed on a case-by-case basis.
If your current system discharges into a surface watercourse you may be able to:
- connect to mains sewer – where available
- install a drainage field (also known as an filtration system) so the septic tank can discharge to ground instead
- replace your septic tank with a small sewage treatment plant
If you would like to discuss an alternative means of sewage treatment such as a cesspool or sewage treatment plant please give us a call.
