So what exactly is a septic system and what does it do? Septic systems are on-site wastewater treatment systems that retain and treat solid wastes and release treated water out in to a drain field.
Your septic tank has billions of tiny bacteria that treat, digest and reduce the volume of sludge and scum. Periodically, septic tanks may need to be pumped out to remove excess sludge and scum (every 3-5 years). Septic systems and drain fields may need to be repaired from time to time.
This is where Environmental Health comes in. We are tasked with inspection, permitting and regulation of On Site Sewage Treatment and Disposal Systems. Additionally, we are responsible for inspecting possible septic nuisances.
You will find information below regarding the various types of septic permits, their costs, and the required documentation that needs to be submitted to the Florida Department of Health in Collier County, Environmental Health & Engineering Division for approval.
