New regulations regarding Septic Tanks

 

Living in a rural area with no mains drainage,I would like to draw your attention to the following changes as shown below. 

If you have a septic tank that discharges directly to a surface water you will need to replace or upgrade your treatment system by 1 January 2020, or when you sell your property if before this date.
