Cesspool Replacement and Cesspool Upgrades

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services has a cesspool replacement scheduled to start today in Norton, MA.  Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced, however, if they exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment, they will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303).  Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).  Our customer is selling their property and the cesspool has been found to be showing signs of failure, so as part of their sale they need to upgrade to a conventional septic system.  If you have a cesspool and are concerned that it needs to be replaced or simply wish to upgrade your cesspool, please do contact our office to discuss your options and make an appointment.  You can reach us at 877-378-4279 or visit
