Mandiitory Tank inspections delayed 6 mo

Post  sc4ram on Thu Dec 02, 2010 1:19 am

Orlando Setinel Nov 16

Lawmakers also voted to delay for six months new septic-tank inspection rules they passed last spring that were set to take effect in January.

"We're talking about a multi-multi-million dollar mandate," said Sen. Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican who said hundreds of thousands of families in his district have septic tanks that would have to be inspected under the new law, at a cost of $150 or more.

State Rep. Steve Crisafulli Speaks out on Septic Tank Rule

Post  sc4ram on Thu Jan 27, 2011 6:40 pm

Fla Today 1-27-11


Q: I've heard a lot of gripes from residents about upcoming inspections for septic tanks. Why cancel them?
Crisafulli: A bill came out that would have started an inspection process every five years, where people have to pay a fee. Basically, it gets bureaucracy back into the lives of everyday people.
In my district, there are homes 25 to 30 years old that would certainly have something said by the Department of Health about their septic tank, whether it's a clay-pipe system or an older system. Well, putting in a new septic system is a $12,000 to $18,000 deal, depending on your soil conditions.
The idea of that bill, originally, was to address the Wekiva River basin because they were having problems with the tanks, and they were concerned about the river. That's why that bill passed. People didn't understand that it would be statewide. I voted against it.
Q: But Brevard has whole communities like Palm Bay and Port St. John that were thrown up years ago by the General Development Corp. that should have had municipal systems, but instead got septic tanks. Are you concerned that canceling the oversight would allow more water pollution?
Crisafulli: No. In our area, it's probably not as likely. Our area is very sandy. We have good percolation. It's not as much of an issue.

SEPTIC TANKS, What's Happening?

Post  sc4ram on Tue Apr 12, 2011 4:37 pm




SEPTIC TANKS
What's happening: A Senate committee passed an amended repeal of a septic-tank inspection law from last year. It now allows local governments (required in counties with big springs) to adopt their own policies. Existing local regulation would to continue under the amended version.
What's next: A House bill is more sweeping in its repeal.

Septic Tank inspection repeal fails

Post  sc4ram on Sun May 08, 2011 1:09 pm

According to Tampa Bay.com May 7, the repeal bill did not pass. (Im guessing it passed the House but not the Senate)


SEPTIC TANKS (Failed): Repeals 2010 policy requiring homeowners with septic tanks to have them inspected by Health Department-certified regulators every five years. (HB 13/SB 1698)

More on tanks

Post  sc4ram on Sun May 08, 2011 5:04 pm



Just read the Sentinel's coverage of this. They said in passing that the existing regulations (that required periodic inspections that was passed last year) , were rendered "unenforceable".

I did read something the other day that indicated there was another bill that left implementation of this to the individual counties. (In theory they would be subject to local public pressure that would buck a costly new inspection requirement , like the Wikeva River basin that this was intended to fix in the first place.)

I sent a note to my State Rep today to ask where property owners stand with his. I'll post any reply.

State Rep's office comments on lack of repeal of manditory Septic Tank Insp bill

Post  sc4ram on Thu May 19, 2011 9:23 pm

This response hit my email today from my State Rep



Thank you for writing to this office. I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you, with the end of Session things have been a little bit hectic. Yes, this legislation passed the House only and not the Senate. Your Representative was disappointed in this and the issue may be revisited next Session. Until then I don’t believe there is much that could be done. I will make sure that Representative Workman receives your message.



Thank you,

Letter to Editor in May 9, 2012 Fla Today Newspaper

Letter to Editor in May 9, 2012 Fla Today Newspaper


A call to action to my fellow citizens and property owners.

If you are one of the 2.7 million residential property owners in Florida with septic tanks on your property — wake up.


While the passage of House Bill 1263, as approved by Gov. Rick Scott on April 27, repealed the mandatory statewide inspection of all septic tanks, it gives local governments the power to regulate septic tanks if there is more than one bedroom per acre. This will be enforced through local code enforcement and may be seen as a new revenue stream.


I’m the unfortunate owner of an aerobic treatment unit (ATU). Because I refuse to comply with the individual mandate found within section 381.0065(4)(u) Florida Statutes and buy an operating permit, so I may legally flush the toilet in my home, I have a $25 daily accruing fine enforced by a recorded lien on my real and personal property.


The nicest way to describe the code enforcement process I went through would be a kangaroo court joke. I prefer to call it a criminal denial of fundamental due process. The DVD made of my Sept. 15, 2011, code enforcement hearing can be viewed by entering ATU Inspection on YouTube.


Please demand Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles T. Canady investigate Cuthbert v. Board of County Commissioners of Brevard County, Code Enforcement Case No. 11CE-01943/Appellate Case No. 05-2011-AP-005882.
