Septic Inspection Mandatory Prior to Property Sale or Transfer

In 2008, the Iowa legislature passed a bill which the Governor of Iowa signed requiring inspection of all septic systems prior to sale or transfer of property. This regulation went into effect July 1, 2009.

If you are installing a new septic system or are having any work done on an existing system, it is best to contact us to determine what, if anything, may need to be done. You may contact Ringgold County Public Health at (641) 464-0691 or contact Environmental Health personnel directly at (641) 414-0191.
