Waukesha County

County Maintenance Program

The holder of any sanitary permit issued for a private sewage system on or after July 1, 1979 is subject to the provisions of the Waukesha County Maintenance Program. Today, all properties having septic systems within Waukesha County are included in this program. The main requirement for property owners is that the septic tank and lift pump tank be pumped and inspected at least once every 3 years. Owners receive a maintenance card in the mail notifying them to have their tank pumped. Once they have had the system pumped and/or inspected, the maintenance company will update the record electronically on our website. Septic tank maintenance not only removes accumulated solids but also allows the pumping contractor to inspect the system for proper operation and to identify any structural problems.
