Septic Systems

Martin County Planning and Zoning permits and inspects the installation of septic systems to ensure that systems meet all regulatory requirements.  County and state regulations require urban and rural residences and businesses to replace systems that do not properly treat effluent.  Existing systems may need to be modified or replaced to meet current regulations.
Licensed septic system designers, inspectors and installers must be used when upgrading or replacing septic systems in Martin County.
