SEPTIC SYSTEMS

Utah regulations require wastewater to be disposed of at an approved sewer or onsite wastewater septic system. Our Environmental Health Division can assist you to apply for a septic system permit, answer questions/concerns throughout the construction process, and help to ensure that your system stays in proper working condition.

REMINDER:

The Southwest Utah Public Health Department and Board of Health recently reiterated their policies related to issuing septic tank permits and the availability of water on properties.  In order for the department to issue a septic permit, a verified source of water must be available to the property. Water hauling is not an acceptable source of water for a septic permit. There is only one exception to this rule: if a property is seasonal (meaning there is only access to the property less than 180 days during the year because of weather-related conditions like snow), then water hauling is permissible. If a property is made accessible for more than 180 days due to snow plowing by private or public services, it must still have a water source other than water hauling in order to receive a septic permit.
