1. If your property has not yet been developed, you can contact Environmental Health Services (EHS) to speak with a Public Health Sanitarian to arrange for a Site Evaluation. A Site Evaluation is an "inspection" of the proposed parcel to determine whether it is suitable for construction of an on-site wastewater treatment system (OWTS). If the site is suitable, specifications will be made as to the type and location of the OWTS. The fee must be received in advance of the Site Evaluation or at the time of the Site Evaluation. When you call, be sure to mention the Town that you are proposing to build in. Different sanitarians are assigned to cover different towns in a particular geographic region. If the specific sanitarian for your area is not available, it is possible for another sanitarian to assist you.
6. Once the permit has been issued to the Contractor, that Contractor listed on the permit must perform the work. However, if you decide to change your mind, you could pay the "permit transfer fee" and have the permit issued to a different Contractor, as long as that Contractor is registered with this Department. If a contractor that is not registered constructs your system, this Department will not issue an approval of the system until that contractor has properly and legally registered with the County Health Department.
