Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How do I get a Septic Permit?
Question: Does this home have a septic system permit and where is the system located?
Answer: Please contact this office. Septic permits are generally filed by the original owner’s name of the house/lot that installed the septic. If there has been more than one owner of the house/lot, please have that information ready when you call our office.
