Onsite Sewage Programs
Commonly referred to as septic tanks, these systems provide a viable wastewater treatment and disposal option for residential and commercial applications when central sewage service is not available.
All proposed new installations, repairs, modifications and approvals of existing systems require a permit from the Florida Department of Health in Gilchrist County.
