Beginning January 2015 counties in the Pikes Peak Region (El Paso, Teller, Park, Pueblo, Douglas) will each have new septic system requirements for properties with onsite waste water systems. What this means is that it will be important for home owners, real estate brokers, inspectors and title companies to be aware of new requirements (especially for the county the house is in). The Pikes Peak Board of Realtors just came out with a document that is a combined effort by the El Paso County Public Health Department and Doug Barber on behalf of the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS®. This walks you through requirements, where to go, what to order, who can do the work and what is required.
For all involved with real estate this is a great document to keep on-hand as a reference for the new septic system requirements. El Paso County Septic System Requirements
