Time of Transfer Inspections and Testing

Shane is an Isabella county certified Time of Transfer (TOT) inspector. In 2017, the Central Michigan District Health Department (CMDHD) amended the Sanitary Code to include TOT regulations. This amendment states that, beginning in 2018, all properties in Isabella County served by onsite sewage systems and water wells that transfer ownership are required to have the sewage system and well inspected by a certified inspector. This regulation was added to minimize potential public health hazards by ensuring, via certified inspection, that water supplies are safe and that private sewage systems are functioning properly. CMDHD provides some very helpful details explaining this process and the purpose behind the new regulations. The following links will take you directly to their site for more information:
