Septic System Inspections & Permits

Septic System (Liquid Waste) Inspections & Permits
Septic system designs for single family homes, small businesses, and apartment buildings (systems less than 3,500 gallons per day) are reviewed for compliance with regulations, permitted, and inspected after installation by the Spokane Regional Health District. Fees vary based on the size and type of system.

The Washington State Department of Health and the Washington State Department of Ecology enforce regulations for large sewage systems. Generally, building permits for structures involved with septic systems cannot be issued without a Health District release.
