Septic Trucks and Disposal Sites

The Health Department regularly inspects all septic trucks and septic disposal sites operating in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton Counties. Inspections are typically done once per year.

Inspectors look for a number of violations, including:

  • Is the septic company properly bonded?
  • Are vehicle identifications and licenses properly displayed?
  • Are tank inlet/outlets watertight and fitted with caps?
  • Are approved disposal sites being used?
  • Is nitrogen uptake maintained at approved disposal sites?
  • Are the list of vehicles, disposal method and number of gallons maintained?
  • Are warning signs adequate and properly posted?
