LURM issues all Sanitary Permits for the County and inspects all system installations for compliance to State codes. Wastewater carries disease-causing bacteria, infectious viruses, household chemicals and excess nutrients that must be removed. If you are not hooked up to city sewer or a sanitary district, your septic system is your wastewater treatment facility (POWTS - Privately Owned Wastewater Treatment System).
