Pump Out Your Septic System

Pump out your septic system!

It’s a good idea to maintain your septic system regularly and now it’s also the law.

To protect the quality of the area’s drinking water, Westchester County and Lewisboro instituted a septic inspection requirement in 2011 that requires that each septic system be pumped at least once during every 5 year period. Enforcement will start in May 2016. 

Failure to pump between May 2011 and May 2016 may result in significant fines - starting at $200 and multiplying rapidly!
