In New Jersey, any advanced wastewater system installed will require a maintenance contract for the life of the system per N.J.A.C. 7:9A Standards For Individual Subsurface Sewage Disposal Systems 7:9A-12.3.
Maintenance is required for advanced wastewater pretreatment systems because they are typically installed where a conventional system cannot be. Advanced wastewater pretreatment systems are installed with smaller disposal areas or closer to wells and property lines than conventional systems so it is very important that they are working as designed and not failing from mis-use or improper maintenance.
