3 Tier Permitting Process
The permitting process consist of 3 permits: Improvement Permit, Construction Authorization and an Operation Permit. Once the Inspector/Sanitarian from the Health Department has performed the soil evaluation “perk test” there are 1 of 2 things that will take place. If the soil is bad then the owner/owners legal representative will receive a turndown letter. If the soil was able to be permitted then an Improvement Permit will be issued.
The Improvement Permit is the 1st permit and will state the type of septic system and the number of bedrooms.The Construction Authorization is the 2nd permit and is needed in order to install the septic system or get any type of building permits. The fee for this permit is dependent upon the type of septic system needed for the lot.
The Operation Permit is the 3rd Permit and is the final permit. This permit is issued when all inspections of the septic system installation has been completed and approved by the Health Department.
