Florida legislature delays effective date of septic tank law
Yesterday the Florida legislature approved a six month delay in the controversial septic tank law that was to take effect on January 1, 2011. That law would have required that homeowners with septic tanks pay for a septic tank inspection every five years at an estimated inspection cost of $500.00. This law is intended to improve the water quality of natural springs and waterways and it's possible that the it will be repealed entirely next year. Additional info.
