National Inspection Plan 2016 Implementation Report

The purpose of this report is to provide data on the implementation of the National Inspection Plan for the period 1st January - 31st December 2016.

The review found that:

  • Half of septic tanks failed local authority inspection in 2016.  As such, these failed systems may pose a health risk to homeowners and their neighbours.
  • Half of inspection failed where there was a private well on site. 
  • A quarter of septic tanks failed due to owners not removing sludge build up from their septic tanks, an issue which can be easily rectified by the homeowner.
