If you will be building an addition to your home, or are replacing your home or mobile home with a new structure on your parcel, you will need approval from the MCHD EH Division prior to receiving a building permit.


To receive an approval to continue the use of an existing septic system for a proposed building permit you must make application to the MCHD EH Division fro an evaluation.  An Environmental Sanitarian will visit your parcel to determine the design and functionality of your existing septic system and will also evaluate your water supply construction.


You will find the application form and fees by clicking on the Applications for Permits link in the menu on the left.


If you have questions, or need assistance applying for an existing system evaluation, please call (906) 475-4195
