The Water and Wastewater Program is meant to provide a sanitary and environmentally responsible way of disposing of domestic wastewater that will minimize the impact on ground and surface water as well as reduce exposure to potential disease causing organisms. Program oversight is limited to less than 2,000 gallons/day of domestic sewage for each household or business. Permits are required to construct, modify or to upgrade wastewater systems.
