Through our sewage program we provide many services that help to protect public health as well as Georgia’s natural resources. These services include septic tank permits, repair permits, existing system evaluations, site evaluations, and subdivision plan reviews. Inspections are also required on both septic tank permits and repair permits. Each inspection is performed by an Environmental Health Specialist according to the Rules and Regulations for On-Site Sewage Management Systems (Chapter 290-5-26). These inspections help to ensure correct installation and proper repair of domestic on-site sewage management systems. Through regulating the installation and repair of on-site sewage systems, our department helps to protect Georgia’s groundwater, drinking water, and surface water from harmful organisms and chemicals.
