Are you hooking into the new sewer line in Chester? It is important that you pump out and fill or crush your existing septic tank! Over time, the septic tank WILL COLLAPSE if not done. Animals, children or even adults can become seriously hurt or die due to falling in a collapsed septic tank. Attached is a picture of a collapsed septic tank and the regulation stating they need to be filled in or crushed. Please contact the Health Department for any further questions. 304-564-3343.
