Planning & Zoning
The Planning and Zoning Office issues all Sanitary Permits for the County and inspects all systems for compliance to State codes. Wastewater carries disease-causing bacteria, infectious viruses, household chemicals and excess nutrients that must be removed. If you are not hooked up to city sewer or a sanitary district, your septic system is your wastewater treatment facility (POWTS - Privately Owned Wastewater Treatment System). Though it is much less complicated than a city's facilities, it serves a similar purpose; to protect public health and prevent pollution.
Wells are regulated by the DNR. Please click here.
