How Do I Find My System?
If your home was built after 1995, your septic tank, drainfield, and reserve drainfield should be clearly designated on the “as-built” drawing for your home on file at the local Environmental Health Division. You might also see lids or manhole covers for your septic tank or inspection risers for your drainfield. Older tanks and drain fields are often hard to find because there are no visible parts and may need to be located by a septic pumper, contractor or consultant.
