Community Development conducts the following routine inspections: 

Septic Systems

Apply the rules and regulations of the Iowa Administrative rules Chapter 69 to ensure that septic systems installed in Council Bluffs have the greatest chance of working properly for the longest period of time. During installation, an on-site inspection is conducted to determine that it is installed to the specifications. An accurate map of the system is required of the installer, which is placed into the file. That file is then kept permanently to allow for reference whenever there is a problem with the system. Once installed, we check to see that the system will properly fit onto the property and that the soils were tested to determine feasibility of that system.
