Environmental Health Notice

During the Department of Health's focus on COVID-19, the ability to renew or approve new permits is limited.

On March 5, the Maryland Governor ordered that the "expiration date of each Covered Authorization is hereby extended to the 30th day after the date by which the state of emergency is terminated." As the Department of Health is an agency of the State, this same rule will be followed for permits issued by the Anne Arundel County Department of Health, Bureau of Environmental Health. This extension of permits will include well permits, perc applications, septic installation permits, waste hauler permits, commercial pool licenses, and pool operator and life guard licenses. At this time, the processing of new permits and the inspections related are limited and if there are questions, please contact the respective program for guidance.
