3.3. Maintenance contract: The owner of a treatment system referred to in section 11.1, 16.1, 87.7 or 87.13 must have a binding contract with the system manufacturer, the manufacturer’s representative or a qualified third person in which it is stipulated that minimum annual maintenance will be performed on the system.
The owner of the system must deposit a copy of the contract with the local municipality in which the isolated dwelling or the other building served by the treatment system is situated.
At the request of the owner of the system, the person who performs the maintenance must provide the owner with a copy of the maintenance report as soon as possible. The person must also, before 31 December each year, send the report to the municipality in whose territory the system is situated and make the report available to the Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks.
The preceding paragraphs do not apply to an owner of a treatment system maintained by the municipality pursuant to section 25.1 of the Municipal Powers Act (chapter C-47.1). The municipality must, however, at the owner’s request, supply a copy of the maintenance report to the owner and make the report available to the Minister.
