Why do I need this bond?
By posting an onsite wastewater board bond in Alabama, principals (installers) pledge to observe all provisions of the laws, rules and regulations, conditions, criteria and orders governing onsite sewage disposal systems in the state. If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full penal sum of the bond ($15,000 or $30,000). The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Alabama onsite wastewater board surety bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled. The surety’s liability under the bond ends on the date listed on the bond form unless the bond is continued from year to year by the issuance of a continuation certificate. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by filing written notice of its intent to cancel with the state at least 45 days prior to the effective date of cancellation.
Applicants should be sure to mark the correct license type on the surety bond form.
