Concerns & Occurrences

NBMCA investigates valid concerns regarding malfunctioning on-site sewage systems.

When a malfunctioning system is confirmed, the septic staff will work with or guide the homeowner to repair or replace the system in a timely manner.  If an inspector can not acquire compliance with the homeowner then an order may be issued under Part 8 of the OBC and the Building Code Act.  

Occurrences are kept on file, listed as either open or closed. Occurrences will also be reported in legal inquiries.  Open occurrences (ie. not yet remedied by the owner) are monitored for follow up by NBMCA.

Proper care and maintenance of your on-site sewage system will go a long way in preventing malfunctioning systems.   Learn more about caring for your system.
