Septic System Information

Environmental Health is defined as the interrelationships between people and their environment. This fosters a safe and healthful environment that promotes human well being. We at the Stone County Health Department are committed to this through our efforts in managing the Onsite Wastewater Program with the issuance of septic permits, investigations and inspections. We also provide information through educational programs.

All Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems must be permitted. This would include new, repaired and replacement systems.

All onsite wastewater system permits shall be valid for one year after date of issuance. If the septic system is not constructed, modified, or repaired within one year, the permit is void and a new permit must be issued.
