1. SEWAGE HOLDING VAULT CERTIFICATIONS
JLPOA Owners are to manage sewage via watertight concrete vaults. These vaults must be emptied by a third party, with strict records keeping requirements, and must be re-certified as watertight every four (4) years. Please see the PDF spreadsheet below to see the date when a Lot’s vault must be re-certified.
Covenants Section 5.15 HOLDING VAULTS
In accordance with all current local and state health department standards and the Compliance Agreement entered into between JLPOA and the Northeast Colorado Health Department (NCHD) on January 7, 1995, holding vaults are required in connection with any structure. All Owners must comply with any NCHD requirements and other applicable regulations. All holding vaults permitted through NCHD shall, on a rotating basis, be certified every four hears to the NCHD to be watertight vessels. Copies of such certifications are to be submitted to the Board for each certification. Should an Owner fail to certify their holding vault in accordance with the Compliance Agreement, JLPOA may exercise all rights and remedies available to it including without limitation, engaging a qualified professional to certify the holding vault upon 30 days written notice to the Owner. Any expenses incurred by JLPOA in certifying such holding vault shall be charged back to Owner as an assessment.
FROM NCHD JLPOA HOLDING VAULT COMPLIANCE AGREEMENT:
(A) Holding vaults of concrete construction with a minimum 1000 gallon capacity shall be permitted for individual sewage disposal as long as the system is installed and operated and the collected sewage is disposed of, in accordance with local and state health department standards, or, if such standards are unavailable, any appropriate applicable standards. These systems are considered temporary pursuant to the requirements of the local health department. No building, zoning or mobile home placement permits will be issued unless the local health department has approved the proposed method of sewage disposal for the lot or unit. Recreation vehicles and single-wide mobile homes may use chemical or other toilets approved by the local health department as long as the central sewage disposal facility approved by the state health department in 1976 or before remains in operation under a current state health department operation and discharge permit and a Morgan County Certificate of Designation.
- (B) All individual sewage disposal systems that have been previously permitted by the local health department and are verified to be water-tight, but are not of concrete construction, or do not meet the current local health department ISDS regulations, may be used for as long as they do not create a public health problem. However, these systems must be inspected and recertified to be watertight by the local health department as it may require from time to time.
In addition to sending the JLPOA Owner the written Vault Past Due notification letter giving 30 days to bring the vault into compliance, a copy will be sent to NCHD.
