Sanitary Engineering Notice

The Septic System and Water Well Programs are working with reduced services during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to serve the needs of the county residents, the review and approval of permits is being conducted on a limited basis. For more information, call Perc Testing: 410-222-7193, Septic Installations: 410-222-7194 or Water Wells: 410-222-7398.

Effective June 22, the department will expand percolation testing beyond the repair of failing onsite sewage disposal systems, currently being performed. Perc tests for additions and new construction will resume, as well as site inspections for limited home additions and verification of existing systems.

For properties that submitted a perc application before April 1, 2020, call the Sanitary Engineering Program at 410-222-7193 to verify if the planned perc test is wet season restricted. Scheduling testing is the responsibility of the applicant or owner, who should contact the sanitarian serving their property’s location. Area sanitarian phone numbers are available at Perc Testing Areas.
