Raw land evaluation is a general soil evaluation test and is typically done for a real estate transaction to make sure the land will perc. If a raw land evaluation is completed and a well and/or septic is desired a well and/or soil evaluation will still be required.
Occasionally questions arise regarding interpretation of sanitary code language. When needed to help clarify the language or sets policy on how certain situations will be handled, guideline statements will be developed and added to this listing.
Old well and septic records after 1972 should be on file with the Environmental Health Office. Call 517-788-4433 or email EHealth@mijackson.org to have files emailed or faxed. Documents can be printed in office for a fee.
