County sanitary permits are issued when unique situations arise where a State sanitary permit issuance is not warranted. For example: a property owner would like to add a room or rooms to an existing building where a State sanitary permit had been issued before and the POWTS has been installed for more than 2 years. During the “addition” building process, it will be necessary to disconnect the existing POWTS from the structure for a period of time and then reconnect to the existing POWTS to the structure via the new building addition.
Another example might be a property owner wants to put up an outbuilding and also wants to put a bathroom in it for a convenience to themselves. A County sanitary permit can be issued so long as the existing POWTS is a code compliant installation previously inspected by Staff of this department.
