East and West Sylvan Township Septic Sweep Compliance Inspections
This proposal will further Cass County's goal of having inspection records for all SSTS systems throughout the county. This project will focus on septic systems in East and West Sylvan Townships. These urbanized townships are located within 2-8 miles of the cities of Brainerd-Baxter and are adjacent to the Crow Wing River near its confluence with the Mississippi River.
Combined, these two townships contain approximately 1,700 SSTS systems of which approximately half have a current certificate of compliance. Many of the systems are located within the Shoreland Zone and have been classified as having soils sensitive to nitrate contamination. This project will complete 500 SSTS Compliance Inspections, conducted by licensed SSTS Inspectors, on parcels in the Shoreland Zones of both East and West Sylvan Township. A more complete Township database will be added to the county-wide data base for existing SSTS.
