Improperly treated wastewater can be a hazard to the environment and to human health. There are specific distances and setbacks that are required in the installation of any wastewater disposal system which aid in preventing contamination of resources, and thus, waterborne illnesses.

‚ÄčUpdating or Installing a System

Before a private wastewater disposal system is updated or installed, it is required for a permit to be filed with the Hardin County Sanitarian. A permit fee of $250 must also be enclosed with the permit. Any updates or installations to a private sewage system must be in accordance with Chapter 69 of Iowa Code.
