Before Public Health can approve a Regional Building Department application, the condition and capacity of the on-site wastewater treatment system (septic system) must be evaluated to determine if it will be adequate to serve a proposed new or repaired residence. Major portions of the septic system must be exposed for inspection by digging or excavating down to the top surface of system components.
Septic evaluations must be conducted by an El Paso County Public Health Licensed System Installer, Licensed System Cleaner, or Colorado Registered Professional Engineer.
