Septic Systems/Liquid Waste
A construction permit must be obtained from the Washoe County Health District (WCHD) to construct, alter, extend, repair, replace or abandon an onsite sewage disposal system. Permits to construct a new onsite sewage disposal system are processed through the appropriate Building Department as part of the building permit application. Permits to alter, extend, repair, replace or abandon onsite sewage disposal systems are processed at the WCHD offices.
