The Sewage Enforcement Officer:

  • Issues permits for installing or repairing on-lot sewage systems
  • Verifies soil/percolation tests to determine if the ground is suitable for on-lot sewage disposal
  • Performs cover-up inspections when construction of on-lot sewage disposal systems are complete
