Oneida County is trying to inventory and inspect older septic systems. Until recently the county only required regular inspections on systems built after 1980.
But Oneida County Zoning Administrator Karl Jennrich says that has changed. The county now needs to inspect all of them.
“ Which is kind of interesting this year, because there are individuals that we’ve contacted that don’t know anything about their septic system, that may never have had it inspected or pumped – that don’t even know what they have for a system.”
