How do I become a licensed septic system pumper/cleaner?

In order to become licensed as a septic system pumper/cleaner with Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) contact one of our four Environmental Health offices. You will need to fill out an application, pay a fee, and complete an affidavit of citizenship. The license is valid from January 1 to December 31 and must be renewed every year. Starting October 1, 2019, all licensed cleaners will be required to attend a National Association of Wastewater Technicians (NAWT) Vacuum Truck Course or Operation and Maintenance I Course prior to receiving a TCHD license.
