The Solid Waste Section does not have the statutory authority to issue permits for the installation of domestic septic systems (e.g. septic tanks and /or nitrification field lines). That authority lies with and is the responsibility of your local government (i.e. county or other municipal government). Please contact your local health department for further information specific to your location.
