Wastewater Programs

Types of Programs

The land use program performs periodic inspections and monitoring for:
  • Septage and Grease Trap Pumper Permits: California Health and Safety Code and Humboldt County Code require that those who engage in this activity in Humboldt County be registered, permitted and inspected annually by our office.
  • Nonstandard Onsite Sewage Disposal System Operating Permits and Inspections: Sewage Disposal systems as defined in Humboldt County Code section 616-2(b) require operating permits and periodic inspection. We track the existence and performance of these systems and report to the Regional Water Control Board.
