Where Can I Get Information About My Septic System?
Do I need a license to operate a food service business?
No license is required at this time, however, you must register and regular inspections are required.
Do I need to get certified to operate a food service establishment?
Yes. According to the Public Health Code at least one person at each establishment must have appropriate training. In Connecticut, that would be the Qualified Food Operator’s or Food Handler’s course offered by most Community Colleges.
How often should I get my septic tank pumped?
Every two to five years depending on use and occupancy. The tank serves to separate solids from liquids; failure to pump can result in system blockage which may require expensive repairs.
How do I avoid getting Lyme disease or Babesiosis?
Both are tick borne diseases that are endemic in Southern New England and the Mid-Atlantic States. Generally the tick must remain attached for a significant length of time to cause disease. The best prevention while out of doors in a wooded area is to use repellant, wear long sleeve shirts and pants and to examine yourself after finishing your activities and to promptly remove any ticks.
