A. Upon completion of the construction or modifications of a sewage disposal system permitted pursuant to a design certified by a licensed professional engineer or onsite soil evaluator, the certifying licensed professional engineer or onsite soil evaluator shall inspect the sewage disposal system installation in a timely manner and submit to the district or local health department a signed inspection report stating that the installation was completed substantially in accordance with the approved evaluation and design revised only in accordance with the provisions of 12VAC5-610-310. This inspection report shall be based upon inspections of the sewage disposal system during and after construction or modifications that are adequate to assure the accuracy of the report. The department may, but is not required to, inspect the installation of such sewage disposal system. In the event that the certifying licensed professional engineer or onsite soil evaluator does not inspect the installation in a timely manner or declines to certify that the installation was completed substantially in accordance with the approved evaluation and design, the owner may petition the district or local health department to inspect the installation and render a final case decision approving or disapproving the installation. The district or local health department shall not be required to convene an informal fact-finding proceeding in accordance with § 2.2-4019 of the Code of Virginia or 12VAC5-610-200 prior to rendering such decision.
