How to obtain a septic tank permit in Lake County Florida

Want to install a new septic system in Lake County Florida? Here is what you need to know.

A properly installed septic system offers an efficient and safe way for removing wastewater. Before you can start the construction of a new septic tank, you must get the required permit. The Environment Health (DOH—Lake County) issues septic tank permits, provided the applicants meet all the requirements and pay the required fee.

Items Needed for a New Septic System Permit In Lake County

Septic Application

Download an Application Form, complete it, and then submit it to start the process.

Site Plan

Along with your septic application, submit a Site Plan (page 2) and a building floor plan.

Pay the required application fee

You need to pay the necessary application fee to your local county health department. Before you are approved for a septic permit, a site evaluation needs to be carried out for determining the conditions on your site.

If you want, experts from your local health department can perform this task. Alternately, you can get the evaluation done without involving the local health department. If you decide to do that, keep in mind that only a Florida-licensed engineer, a licensed septic tank contractor, a Florida-licensed soil scientist, or a certified person can perform the site inspection.
