Household Sewage Treatment Program
The goal of the home sewage treatment program is to prevent the spread of disease through potential contact with untreated or partially treated wastewater. In order to do this, the environmental division oversees the design, installation, repair and replacement of household sewage treatment systems. Sanitarians are responsible for conducting the site review and approving a layout plan of a septic system. The system design is based on the soil type and the anticipated water usage of the home.

Semi-public Sewage System Program (HB110)
The Erie County Health Department (ECHD) has entered in to contract with the Ohio EPA to conduct routine operation and maintenance inspections of all semipublic sewage systems in the county where sanitary sewers are not available. A semipublic system is defined as “Semipublic disposal system” means a disposal system that treats the sanitary sewage discharged from publicly or privately owned buildings or places of assemblage, entertainment, recreation, education, correction, hospitalization, housing, or employment, but does not include a disposal system that treats sewage in amounts of more than twenty-five thousand gallons per day. This language is included in Ohio Revised Code 3709.085. ECHD will issue a permit on an annual basis and provide semiannual inspections of these facilities.
If any questions arise, please contact Daryl Apple R.S. at 419-626-5623 ext. 124.
