If a home is built on 3 acres or less in Pike County, an On-Site Wastewater Treatment System Permit Application (Septic/Sewage Permit) must be obtained for $115.00. This ensures that the sewage system is installed correctly by a state registered sewage installer.
If a home is built on more than 3 acres it is only exempt from a sewage permit. Therefore, a proper sewage system must still be installed. A sewage permit may still be obtained for a home built on more than 3 acres for the sewage system to be approved.
Licensed Engineers are needed if your system can not be a conventional system or a lagoon. Lists of registered/licensed installers can be found below along with permit information.
