Private Septic Systems

     The Environmental Health Department is the administrative authority for enforcing state code, enforcing county health regulations, and permitting of private septic systems within Dallas County. The following attachment explains the permitting procedure in detail (septic permit procedure).  Dallas County ordinance requires a soil analysis and design be done by an approved entity prior to submitting an installation permit.  If the design calls for an alternative system than a contract with an approved maintenance provider must be on file prior to permitting and for the life of system.  Installation and septic repair must be done by an approved septic contractor.  A copy of your existing private septic system permit and diagram, if available, can be sent to you upon request via email or picked up in office. Feel free to contact us for information on your septic system at 993-5803 or e-mail.
