Pumping Requirements

Monroe Township requires all on-lot septic systems be pumped a minimum of every 3 years.  A home's phasing is based on areas established by the Township, a home must remain in it's assigned phase regardless of when the last pumping was completed.  Every year the residents in the currently due phase will receive a letter reminding them that their system is due for pumping and inspection during that year.  If you have questions about what phase your home is in, or when the next pumping is required; please contact the Township office for more information.

Monroe Township does not contract with or recommend any one company to complete required pumpings, homeowners may use any company they choose.  The Township does, however, supply many of the area companies with our forms, make them aware of our policies, and ask that they submit completed forms to the Township in a timely manner.  A list of companies that receive the required forms and information can be found here.
