[ARCHIVED] Temporary Suspension Of Septic System Site Evaluations and Issuance of Septic Construction Permits


The Story County Environmental Health Department has temporarily suspended septic system site evaluations and is not issuing septic construction permits.  The Environmental Health Director retired, and her replacement will be starting on July 26, 2021.  Therefore, until further notice, septic construction application submittals must include a professional evaluator’s report (soils analysis).  Upon receipt of the application, site evaluation report, and $150 fee, the department will place on hold.  Once the new Environmental Health Director starts, a site check will be completed and septic permit issued.

Septic alterations (replacing the tank or d-box) do not require a site evaluation.  To obtain an alteration permit, simply submit the application and $25 fee.  We apologize for any inconvenience. Please feel free to call 515-382-7240 with any questions.
