Permit and inspect all businesses or establishments that sell food to the public. Examples include restaurants, bars, schools, day cares, temporary food stands, retail establishments, etc. Permit, inspect and approve on-site wastewater system installations. Work with sewage treatment plants, home aeration units and septic tank cleaners to insure that the regulations governing them are followed.

Evaluations of water and sewage systems for lending institutions are also conducted. Lending institutions require that a home with an individual sewage disposal system be inspected and approved before the closing of the sale. This is not a state mandated program, however the CCHD has for many years offered this important service to report the actual conditions found, regardless of who requests the service. The evaluation service is provided for a fee of $130.00. Click Here for the Guidelines for Evaluating water and sewage for Home loan.
