Site Evaluation

Home buyers, banks and other lending institutions may request an inspection of the existing well and subsurface sewage system construction, setbacks, and water quality as a condition of the sell or refinance of a property. Environmental Health Specialists will conduct this inspection, take appropriate water samples, and submit an “as is” report to the requester. If there is a water quality issue, the EHS will consult with the requester about procedures to remedy the problem.
