The as built and submitted plans do not match. Ours was advertised (have proof) and sold as a 4 br. A 4br requires a 30% larger drain field and 150 gallon larger septic tank. Also impact fees were based on number of Brs. Per DOH code they were supposed to ask for revised floor plan. If they had the drain field and septic would have been larger and we would probably not have a problem.
Reponse from XXXXX XXXXX - Lake Cty Health Dept.
On 03/18/09 you wrote "Mr. Miller, When DOH inspected the residence in conjunction with the septic system inspection, the lay-out was as the plans indicated and met the definition of a three bedroom residence. The septic system was given final approval at that time having met all of the criteria of the issued permit.
If at the time of the final inspection of a septic system, the floor plans in the file do not match the residence built on site, then DOH does ask for updated floor plans prior to final approval. If that residence requires a larger septic system, then that also is required to be installed and inspected prior to final approval of the septic system."
Excerpt from "64E-6.004 Application for System Construction Permit."
(5) The applicant shall be the permit holder and shall be held responsible for all information supplied to the department. The signed application, site evaluation, and system design plans when required, serve as the basis by which the department determines the issuance of a construction permit. In the event of a change in any information given in the application which served as basis for issuing a construction permit, the permit holder will immediately file an amended application detailing such changed conditions. If the new conditions are determined to be in compliance with the standards in this chapter, the construction permit shall be amended. If the new conditions are determined to be in non-compliance with the standards of this chapter, the permit shall be revoked subject to the provisions of Chapter 120, F.S. A system construction permit application shall be valid for one year. If a permit has not been issued to the applicant within one year from the date of application, then the department shall review the construction permit application for accuracy at no charge prior to issuance of a permit. The applicant shall supply a statement that the information contained in the application has not changed, or shall amend the application. If a site visit is necessary as part of the review, then a re-evaluation fee shall be charged. If the rules under which the application was accepted have changed, and an onsite sewage treatment and disposal system construction permit has not been issued, a new permit application shall be required.
