Individual Sewage Treatment Systems

Private septic systems are required by ordinance to be inspected and pumped once every three years. This is to comply with MPCA 7080 rule and to minimize the number of failing systems. Failing systems allow untreated material to seep into groundwater water, then later be pumped to the surface through a well intended for personal use. Septic System Pumping Cards are available at City Hall and must be returned after each pumping. Please have your septic inspector complete these cards. A list of licensed septic pumpers is available at
