Who Regulates Septic Systems?

In Georgia, the local County Health Dept regulates, inspects and issues permits for septic installations and repairs. Alot goes into the issuing of a septic permit. Before land is developed for a subdivision, soil tests have to be performed (if no sewer is available) across the scope of the neighborhood. After the roads and utilities are installed, and the houses are being constructed, then a septic permit can be applied for and the system installed. Each system is unique and custom designed for each home. Some factors of the design are: Number of bedrooms, water usage volume, soil type, proximity to lakes, rivers, etc., topography of land, easements, wells and property lines. There are specialized systems such as Aqua Safe that can be used when all of these factors may not be met.
