SANITATION & SEPTIC

ON-SITE SEPTIC WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PROGRAM

Community Development offers application processing and permitting for conventional and some alternative on-site septic wastewater systems.    Services include monitoring site investigations, reviewing applications and installation plans, issuing construction authorizations, inspecting newly installed septic systems, issuing authorizations for discharge from septic systems, and monitoring transfers of septic systems to new property owners.

The authority for the environmental programs is delegated to Community Development by Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, often referred to as ADEQ. Their website is www.azdeq.gov
