Operation Permit

October 23, 2019 - Please be advised that due to the current increase in Operation Permit Public Records requests, turn around time may be delayed up to 10 business days.

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.
