Onsite Wastewater Program (Septic & Sewer)

The Onsite Wastewater Program is administered through local health departments and begins with the use of evaluations to determine if the site and soil conditions are suitable for onsite wastewater systems.  All homes need a sewage disposal system.  Contact your city/county to determine if you have access to a sanitary sewage connection (City Sewer).


If you do not have access to sanitary sewer you will be required to install a private sewage system.  Please see the information below and contact the health department with any questions.
