  • Applications for a sewer permit must be completed in full with a 911 address newspaper-md.pngand submitted to LCHD with payment for approval. Once the application is approved, a copy will be given to the homeowner. The homeowner may then give the approved permit to the contractor of their choice.
  • Contractors must notify LCHD 3 business days prior to installation of a system with the property owner's name and address. No work is to commence without an approved application. 
  • Retail dealers delivering tanks must call LCHD the day of delivery.
