We have a septic system and employ a company to inspect the system 3 times per year in order to satisfy the requirements of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). In looking over the contract they sent to us, I was struck by this sentence: "Unhindered access (viscous dogs, locked gates, etc) to the system is the responsibility of the User/Homeowner."
Viscous means "having a thick, sticky consistency between solid and liquid". I don't think I should be responsible for viscous dogs. The TCEQ might ought to be notified regarding viscous dogs. That sounds like failure in the environmental quality.
