Do I need a septic or sewage installed prior to obtaining my building permit?

Yes. We require that the sewage system be available before construction begins. In the case of a community sewer system, a release from the operating company is required to authorize the hook-up before the construction of the building. In the case of a septic system, a soil test in the desired area for the system is required. Additionally, the system must be installed and inspected in order to be ready for hook-up once the building is complete. In certain cases, installation may be delayed due to inevitable circumstances. Navajo County will work with the contractor or homeowner in these special situations.
