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.
