Onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems or septic tank systems in Douglas County, NE are permitted and inspected by the DCHD environmental department. Inspection reduces the chance for pollution of ground water and surface water, and eliminates the potential for the spread of infectious diseases.

If you are building or expanding your home, the Douglas County Health Department may require that you obtain a permit to ensure that sewage disposal systems and water supply connections are safe, satisfactory and in compliance with all health codes. The permit approval process helps ensure that sewage disposal systems are properly designed, maintained, and operated, minimizing the possibility of disease transmission and the potential for contamination of ground and surface waters. Permit applications are reviewed by registered Sanitarians for conformance to regulations and construction standards.

DCHD Permits are required:

  • Geothermal Wells
  • Private Sewage Disposal System
  • Private Water Supply System
  • Sanitary Test

Permit Applications are available on the website under Water/Wastewater or Permits
