Septic System Information

The Daviess County Health Department is committed to ensuring that septic systems are being installed and maintained by all county residents. By requiring applications for septic system permits PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION and installation by a certified installer, the Health Department can better ensure that septic systems are upholding the requirements as set forth in Indiana's Rule 410 IAC 6-8.3, Indiana's Rule 410 IAC 6-10.1 and Daviess County Septic Ordinance 2023-3.

The Daviess County Environmental Health Services Staff are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to assist Daviess County Residents in obtaining information regarding septic system requirements and concerns, including Septic System Permits and System Inspections.

It is best to contact our department by telephone before visiting as the staff is out of the office conducting fieldwork regularly.
