Onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS), commonly referred to as septic systems, are a safe and effective means of wastewater disposal for 30 percent of Florida’s population.  Properly designed, constructed, and maintained systems protect Florida’s ground water which provides 90 percent of Florida’s drinking water. 

Permitting and inspection of OSTDS for Lafayette County is handled by the Environmental Health Section of The Florida Department of Health in Lafayette County.  Permits issued are for new systems, repair of systems, or during building construction.

Fees are charged for regulation, inspection and permitting services.

Please call our Environmental Health Office at (386) 294-1321for fee information.
