We have 2 Cisterns in our town (very few hydrants in town). 1 is town owned, the other is privately owned. We are in the process of getting the town tank replaced because it leaks bad. I am curious
1. Does anyone have a town bylaw requiring cisterns in non-hydrant areas that puts a housing development in? 2. Do you have any regulations for privately owned cisterns? The private system we have in town has probably not been touched for MANY years. Because it's on private property I want to depend on it, but I don't want to risk causing any damage to it and being responsible for it. I plan to have the association get it maintained and provide documentation about the reliability of it. I am working close with my building inspector on both of these. Thank you for any input on this!!!
