The Minor Plan Review, also known as Reconnect/Remodel Review is used to determine if the existing septic system is of sufficient capacity to accommodate flow from a new or replacement structure on the parcel or for a modification to the existing structure or to ensure that any structures added to the property meet all setback requirements.
Utilizing an Existing Septic System
There are several scenarios where property owners may want to utilize an existing septic system:
Removal and replacement of an existing mobile or manufactured home with a newer mobile or site-built home
Remodeling of an existing home
Rebuilding of a home which has been destroyed
Purchasing of a lot which has an existing septic system but no existing structure
Adding a guest house or pool house or other permanent structure to the property
Public Record Request
Public Record Request is required before submitting a Minor Plan Review, or to ensure that any added structures to the property meet necessary setback requirements.
Minor Plan Review Outcome
If, after the Minor Plan Review, MCESD determines the existing septic system is inadequate for the proposed changes, an Alteration to replace either the tank or the disposal field, or a NOID application to replace the tank and the disposal field, may be required.
