From the Pueblo Chieftain (John Norton): “Any septic system repairs that require a health department inspection will cost an additional $23 starting next week, according to the associate director of the Pueblo City-County Health Department Environmental Health Division. The local agency charges $40 for inspections of repairs but Ken Williams told the Board of Health Wednesday that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment wants a $23 state fee collected, too. Since the new fee went into effect last summer, Williams said it was only collected on new systems, which also carry a $325 local inspection fee. The $23 goes to pay for a staff position at the state level so that local health departments can get help reviewing installations and engineering plans.”
