Installer Program

The Regional Office Program is developing a new voluntary installer program for contractors who install onsite wastewater treatment (septic) systems and potable water supply connections.  The concept is to provide installers the information and training associated with the proper siting, design, and construction of wastewater systems and potable water supplies that are regulated by the Wastewater System and Potable Water Supply Rules. 

Training classes will be developed based on best practices and the requirements contained in the Wastewater System and Potable Water Supply Rules.

What is a septic system?

septic field illustration Septic systems are wastewater treatment systems that collect, treat, and disperse wastewater generated by a home or business. The wastewater is treated and discharged to the soils rather than collected and transported to a wastewater treatment plant. The typical septic system consists of a septic tank and some kind of leachfield to disperse the wastewater into the ground.

Wastewater Systems and Potable Water Supplies Program Permits

Wastewater Permit Search

Our long term goal is to have all of the Division's public documents available to you electronically via this public web-interface.

The Regional Offices have scanned the documents and plans from their current project files into pdf format and entered them into the document database. The older microfilmed documents, though not yet accessible on-line, are expected to be available in the near future. 

Licensed Designers Program Training and Continuing Education

Every two years, an affidavit must be submitted with the Renewal application confirming completion of 12 continuing education credit hours, including 4 hours of soil related courses. The Department will provide sufficient training sessions to allow for fulfillment of the continuing education requirement. The Department may also recognize training provided by others as meeting this requirement. It is recommended that pre-approval be requested to ensure that training provided by others will be considered acceptable, if the course is not listed below.

Licensed Designers Program Exam Schedules

 Examinations are given for a Class A license (both written and field); for a Class B license; and for Class B Designers who wish to design water supply systems beyond individual water supply wells.
