When a property owner has disconnected a septic tank, holding tank or seepage pit from an onsite wastewater treatment system or has discontinued using the entire system, the disconnected septic tank, holding tank or seepage pit or the discontinued system shall be deemed abandoned. In that case the property owner shall destroy any septic tank, holding tank or seepage pit within 30 days from the date the system or system component is deemed abandoned. As used in this section “destroy” means that the property owner has had a licensed septic waste hauler remove the contents from any abandoned septic tank, holding tank or seepage pit and the property owner has backfilled the component with sand, gravel or other clean fill material.
