Qualified Individuals :: On-Site Sewage Disposal Systems ::
A Septic Disposal System is composed of two
parts, the septic tank and the septic disposal field. This requires
the work of a Qualified Person licensed by Nova Scotia Environment

be sure to ask the following questions:
Is the person conducting the septic
inspection Licensed by NSE?
If they are not licensed with NSE they
have no business being on the property, unless they have
been accompanied by a Qualified Person who can provide a
"Qualified Opinion and Advise". Qualified Persons Level II are
qualified to select, on-site sewage disposal systems for single
family residential dwellings. Qualified Persons Level II carry a
Certification of Qualification from Nova Scotia Environment.
They are technical
persons holding valid liability insurance and
have been properly trained and certified.
Do they have Errors and Omissions Insurance
for providing advice on the septic system?
Do they have Commercial General Liability
Insurance for digging into the septic system and for releasing
sewer gases into homes or damages to the septic pipe when
removing and or installing the cleanout plug or toilet for video
