Both Ingham and Shiawassee Counties have in place a Point of Sale (POS) program.  The Counties encourage sellers to have well and/or septic systems inspected when the property is placed on the market for sale.  Both County Sanitary Codes require arsenic testing of the water in addition to the standard tests for coliform (bacteria) and Nitrates.  The following are items the owner/sellers are responsible for.  Do not schedule inspections until all utilities are on, including running water from all faucets and inspector is able to flush toilets to avoid additional costs.
