An On-Site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS), commonly known as a septic system, treats the wastewater on an individual’s property. Septic systems are installed on properties that cannot be served by a wastewater utility. Tri-County Health Department permits the installation, repair, and use of these systems in our jurisdiction.
Effective October 1st, 2019, all Onsite Wastewater Treatment System designers, soil evaluators, installers, inspectors, operation and maintenance providers, and pumpers will be required to obtain the National Association of Wastewater Technicians (NAWT) training course for the discipline they want to work in. More information about upcoming classes is available at www.cpow.net. For more information contact your local field office.
