Homeowners With Aerobic Septic Systems:
The Milam County Health Department would like to remind citizens that a maintenance contract is required on ALL aerobic septic systems.

The permitting authority for Milam County is the Milam County Health Department. In order for the contract to be valid it MUST be signed by both the homeowner and the maintenance provider. Failure to keep a current maintenance contract on file with the permitting authority is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500/each day.
Maintenance for aerobic systems must be performed by a State Certified Maintenance Provider. All maintenance providers are required to send inspection reports to the permitting authority and owner within 14 days after the date the test is performed. The maintenance provider must comply with inspection reports as outlined in the contract. An inspection must be completed and an inspection report must be submitted once every 4 months at a minimum. Failure to inspect the system or provide an inspection report to the permitting authority is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500/each day. The permitting authority for Milam County is the Milam County Health Department. The maintenance provider could also face civil and administrative penalties as well.
