When a property is being sold that has a septic / well, the seller must have the water/septic tested and the results must be reviewed by the health department. Results should be brought in person to the health department. At that time, the seller will sign the paperwork and there is a $50 review fee.
If the results are approved, health will bring them to the housing office to be part of the certificate of occupancy.
Contact the Health Department to see if they have a file since they have records going back to approximately 1990. If the tank was installed prior to around 1990, they most likely will not have a record. If they do not have a file, you will have to hire a private septic company to come out and locate the septic tank.
Also, if work is going to be done on the septic, a permit is required through the health department.
