Permit Information for Your Septic Tank Installation
A state sanitary permit, issued by the county, is required for installing a new or replacing an existing septic system. For new construction, keep in mind that the sanitary permit must be applied for before you can obtain a building permit. However, only a licensed plumber can apply for a sanitary permit. Permits for conventional septic systems and holding tanks can be reviewed at the county level and take a few days to obtain. Mound, at-grade, and in-ground pressure septic systems require a state review as well and may take a few weeks to obtain.
Below are some of the information that we will need from you:
- Owner's name
