Homeowners tell health board to flush septic tank policy; changes likely

By Ben Carlson

If health board members had any question about where septic tank owners stand on an ordinance that requires them to pump their tanks every three years, they don’t any more.

About 50 people attended last Wednesday’s meeting of the Anderson County Board of Health in an attempt to get the board to change the ordinance.

Adopted in 2004 and reaffirmed in 2007, the ordinance requires those with homes three years old or newer to have their tank pumped and inspected every three years. The pumping costs about $250, on top of a $25 fee to the health department.
