Onsite Sewage

The Onsite Wastewater Program is administered through local health departments and begins with the use of onsite evaluations to determine if site and soil conditions are suitable for onsite wastewater systems. Certified inspectors perform site evaluations and inspections in Kentucky and certified installers must install systems unless a homeowner wishes to install his or her own system and obtains a homeowner’s permit.
