Smoke in the Eagle River Valley

Smoke in the Eagle River Valley is coming in from fires to the west. 

If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly.

Apply for Septic Permit

If you are building a new home served by a septic system, also called an on-site wastewater treatment system (OWTS), your building permit cannot be released until Environmental Health issues an OWTS permit.

If you are adding bedrooms to a structure served by an OWTS, please contact Environmental Health regarding OWTS sizing requirements and obtaining an OWTS alteration permit.

If your OWTS fails (example: wastewater surfacing) or needs to be repaired, please contact Environmental Health regarding the requirements for obtaining an OWTS repair permit.
