Community wastewater management and adequate sewer systems play important roles in sanitation and disease prevention. Wastewater can contaminate the local environment and drinking water supply, thereby increasing the risk of disease transmission. Therefore, to improve health, it is vital to develop a system to manage community wastewater and sewage. In many countries, proper wastewater management is not practiced due to lack of resources, infrastructure, available technology, and space.
Our Environmentalist plays an important role to establish operation and maintenance standards and to promote the effective management and installation of wastewater treatment systems for the life of the systems. By inspecting wastewater systems within our county for proper installation we can ensure the level of treatment necessary to adequately protect public health and surface and groundwater quality.
An inspection and permit is required from Pike County Health Department for those installing a septic system on less than 3 acres. It is important to know there are many different types of wastewater systems that are designed to fit the needs of your specific soil type and more. Our Environmentalist can help guide you through this process to ensure you are installing the proper system for your property. You may also utilize the Steps for Installing a Septic System document below.

Please use this form to alert our Environmental Specialist of potential sewage/septic hazards. Household wastewater is loaded with disease-causing bacteria and viruses, as well as high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. It is important to the health of the community to ensure area residents have a properly functioning septic system as it helps remove these pollutants so well water and nearby surface water doesn’t get contaminated.
