Septic Systems


The goal of the On-Site Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS) Deaprtment is to ensure proper onsite wastewater disposal in areas which are not served by municipal sewer.  This Department issues all OWTS/septic permits, septic clearances and reviews land use applications where an OWTS is proposed.  All OWTS installers and pumpers/cleaners must be licensed by this Department to install, pump and haul wastewater to a treatment facility.
