CONDITIONS:

Septic systems that have not been installed to MOA/DEC approval, have separation distance problems, or were installed without monitor tubes will require additional testing or installation of monitor tubes.

Flat fee testing assumes a five hour well test period and no unusual conditions encountered which require extended testing, beyond a full day's time period to determine adequacy of the system. The above fee's do not include follow-up inspections to correct deficiencies or any meetings or phone meetings with 3rd parties involved in transaction. Any work performed in excess will be on a time and materials basis and only with our client's prior knowledge and approval. 

An asbuilt survey copy is required for all Municipal Health Approvals. Existing survey copies may be adequate for this use.

We allow up to two hours for locating septic pipes under snow cover, an additional charge may be assessed depending on accessibility and/or mechanical snow removal required in excess of this time. It is encouraged that the owner facilitate ease of operation by uncovering all known standpipes, in which case there will be no additional charge.
