A Septic System Permit (also known as Onsite or Individual Sewage Disposal System Permit) is required to ensure any septic system installed in Montgomery County meets all current County and State standards relative to minimum setbacks associated with the protection of the health of all residents and the environment.
🆕 Please note that the following condition will be effective regarding building permit applications received on or after July 1, 2024: When a septic permit is required to upgrade or relocate components of an existing septic system to obtain approval of a building permit application, all work must be completed and any conditions of the septic permit met, prior to approval and issuance of the building permit. This applies to building permits for additions/alternations only, not new construction
