Commonwealth of Kentucky Application and Permitting Process for Individual Home Sewage Systems
The Onsite Wastewater Program is administered through local health departments and begins with the use of onsite evaluations to determine if site and soil conditions are suitable for onsite wastewater systems. Certified inspectors perform site evaluations and inspections in Kentucky and certified installers must install systems unless a homeowner wishes to install his or her own system and obtains a homeowner’s permit.
To register a complaint regarding a septic system, septic system installer or septic tank pumper, please contact your local health department.
