Environmental Health - Liquid Waste Program


Environmental Health is responsible for protecting public health and the environment from the potential adverse health and environmental impacts associated with on-site individual sewage disposal systems. This responsibility is carried out through the review of septic system design proposals, review of septic system design criteria, and inspection of new septic system construction and repair of existing systems to determine conformance with applicable codes.


Environmental Health also manages the proper disposal of liquid waste collected from licensed septage haulers through a permit issuance and inspection process.
