What happens after the inspections?

The outcomes of the inspections generally result in a phone call from the Sanitarian, and/or the issuance of a tag:

  • White Tag: Approval of specified inspection. You may proceed to the next step.
  • Blue Tag: Additional information is needed to determine the outcome of the inspection, which may involve consultation with the excavating contractor or Environmental Health staff. A blue tag may or may not result in an additional inspection and/or fee.
  • Red Tag: The system is not properly constructed, or the permit conditions were not followed . The system is not approved until corrections have been made and it is re-inspected. A re-inspection fee will be assessed.
  • Green Tag: Final approval of the system is granted.
