Daily Septage Pumping Report Form
Please note that septage pumpers who dispose of septage at sewage treatment plants still need to complete this form. However, you may indicate in the last column of the report that the septage is disposed of at a sewage treatment plant. You will also need to complete the columns pertaining to Ph adjustment if you are disposing of septage at a sewage treatment plant that does not require Ph adjustment of septage.
Septage pumpers should also indicate whether they adjust the Ph of septage prior to land application or septage. All septage that is to be land applied must be mixed with lime and raised to a Ph of 12 or higher and shall remain at a Ph of 12 or higher for 30 minutes.
