Homeowners interested in constructing a home away from a city sewer system may contact the Environmental Health Department for information regarding the licensing and inspection of septic system construction. 

County residents interested in having an existing septic system inspected for compliance with public health standards prior to the purchase of a rural property may also call for an on-site evaluation of the septic system.


The following inspections are required for new construction:

  • Site review to assure your location meets state and county standards. During the construction process, prior to covering any portion of the system.

  •  Final inspection, the administrator will give your system a final inspection and will draw a diagram of its exact location to be kept on file in the department.

Contact Matt Pitt for more information or to make an appointment.
