In properties where the existing septic tank is failing or is about to fail due to many factors which includes breakage, root intrusions, unstable soil or simply an addition to the property; many cities will mandate the home owner to have the septic tank abate or abandoned. The home owner will need to have a new sewer line installed and  connected to the city sewer line.

Process

In many cases this makes it difficult for home owners or business since the process can become complicated. The property owner will need to have an engineer draft the new line connecting to nearest city sewer line or the most appropriate city sewer line based on capacity. The homeowners responsibilities will include to pay a city connection fee, a plumbing contractor to abate the septic tank and to a city code sewer lateral.
