Septic Systems
Martin County Planning and Zoning permits and inspects the installation of septic systems to ensure that systems meet all regulatory requirements.  County and state regulations require urban and rural residences and businesses to replace systems that do not properly treat effluent.

The purpose of the Sewage and Wastewater Treatment Ordinance shall be to provide minimum standards for the regulation of subsurface sewage treatment systems and septage disposal including the proper location, design and construction to protect surface water and groundwater from contamination by human sewage and waterborne household and commercial wastes; to protect the public's health and safety, and eliminate or prevent the development of public nuisances.
