New Regulations coming to England soon!!

Engalnd might be in for some new regulations on septic tank systems. There is to be a new Legislation from the EU directive that is already in place for Wales, Scotland and Ireland and will be expected to hit England soon. Your Septic Tank location and potential tank system to pollute, will determin how your Septic tank will comply with the new regulations.

Owners of existing and new septic tank systems will be required to apply for ‘A Consent to Discharge Clean Water’ then you will be able to discharge ‘cleaned water’ from thier sewage treament plant, straight into a river.

If you have a NEW septic tank system, then The Enviroment Agency will need a ‘Building Control’ certificate before they will consent, this is just to show that the system has been installed according to ‘Building Regulations’. Most domestic Septic Tank Systems will achieve the ‘Exemption Certificate’.

Septic tank owners will still be expected to empty and maintain thier systems on an annual basis and will need to keep records for potential inspections by the Enviroment Agent in the future.

Your Septic tank should be emptied on a regular basis to ensure a clean enviroment and a well conditioned Tank. Tardis Enviromental can provide a Septic Tank Empty  and get rid of the waste within the laws and regulations.
