What Buyers & Sellers need to know.
Earlier this year Rhode Island's Congress amended the Rhode Island Cesspool Act of 2007 to help clean up Narragansett Bay and protect our drinking water. The new changes go into effect January 1st 2016.
Amended? What was the Cesspool Act originally?
For the past few years only homes within 200 feet of the water or watershed areas were required to meet Phase Out inspection criteria including acceptable water flow and a passing grade on mandatory annual inspections. If a property was sold in these areas, the new buyer was given a timeline to replace the system.
The original act was intended to make the process and expense more manageable for homeowners, while improving Rhode Island's water quality.
