The Pike County Health Department has enacted an updated On-site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) ordinance to begin on July 1, 2020. A few changes were made to the prior ordinance to better protect our citizens and the environment. The largest change is the 3-acre exemption. Formerly, only residential property that was smaller than 3 acres was required to have a permit and inspection through the Health Department. Commercial property did not fall under this exemption. As of July 1, 2020 any property owner, residential or commercial, wishing to install OWTS must have a permit and inspection through the Health Department, regardless of property size. The bond requirement for installers is being increased from $10,000 (ten-thousand dollars) to $20,000 (twenty-thousand dollars). The current permit fee is $115.00. The new ordinance can be found using the link below. A physical copy can be found at the County Clerk’s Office, or the Health Department.
