Building Inspector / Code Enforcement

Effective April 16, 2011, newly revised Subsurface System Bureau Rules were adopted. These revisions supersede and replace previous requirements for the repair or replacement of existing Individual Sewage Disposal System (ISDS) form the 2008 rules. Specially, for circumstances where an ISDS that services a residence needs to be repaired or replaced, the ISDS owner must now submit a complete application for review and approval to the DES prepared by either a permitted designer or the residential ISDS homeowner. The purpose od this procedure is to better ensure that systems that are repaired or replaced are designed and installed in accordance with NH  standards to minimize the possibility of future failure.
