How to obtain a septic tank permit in Highlands county Florida
You need a septic tank permit before you can install a new septic tank. If you are in Highlands County (Fl), Environment Health (DOH—Highlands County) will issue you a septic tank permit, provided you meet all the requirements and pay the required fee.
First, fill out and submit an application form. Along with the application form, applicants must also submit a site plan and a building plan.
Before the septic tank permit can be issued, a site inspection is required. The department of Health Highlands can conduct the site inspection for a fee if you want. Alternately, you can have the inspection done without involving the Department of Health. If you decide to do that, you must get the inspection done by a Florida-licensed engineer, a licensed septic tank contractor, a Florida-licensed soil scientist, or any person certified to perform a site inspection.
