Additional Information:

What role does the soil play in system function and failure? We give some examples. Not sure what to do with an alternative system? We’ll explain “what” and “why”. Have you ever puzzled over ambiguous septic inspection reports? This course will lead you through the report-writing process step-by-step, pointing out what you should look for and, more importantly, what you as a report writer should be including in your reports. Representatives from the NJDEP’s Bureau of Non-point Source Pollution will be on hand to discuss the inspection process in New Jersey and where it might be headed. Additional speakers will discuss the pros and cons of the various test methods out there – and the applicability of each.

A visit to an active septic system will be part of the program, along with pointers on what not to miss. Join our course coordinators Tom Cahill (New Jersey Septic Management Group) and Marilyn Mroz (Cushetunk Technical Services) and great invited speakers and improve your knowledge of the septic inspection process in New Jersey!
