Septic systems are a safe and effective means of wastewater disposal. Properly designed, constructed and maintained systems protect Florida’s groundwater.

The Department issues permits to build, repair or modify septic systems. Staff also inspect private sewage treatment plants at campgrounds, retreat centers, mobile home parks and other facilities. The Department licenses and regulates septic contractors, pump truck companies, lime stabilization facilities, and septic tank manufacturers.
