In most rural areas and in many suburban residential areas, individual sewage treatment systems (ISTSs) are relied upon for the disposal of household wastes. An ISTS will serve a home satisfactorily only if it is properly located, designed, constructed and maintained.
Per the NY State Health Code, please contact the Clinton County Health Department for instructions on obtaining a construction permit to install, replace, or if you are re-engineering a septic system.
Refer to the Info Bar for the Sewage Treatment System Permit Application packet. This packet includes instructions, forms for percolation tests, soil test referral listing, application for construction permit, and more.
