The SCPH Operation Permit program began in May of 2015. Changes to the Ohio Administrative Code now require that no person shall operate a Home Sewage Treatment System without a valid Operation Permit. Currently SCPH Operation Permit fees range from $10 to $30 annually. The goal of this program is to improve water quality in Summit County and surrounding watersheds.
