Septic Program

South Nation Conservation issues permits and services related to severances, land development, new construction, and inspections of private sewage systems. Privately owned sewage systems, including septic tanks and leaching beds, require a permit for installation or alteration  under the Ontario Building Code. Proper operation and maintenance of your private sewage system is also required under this Code.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs has developed a series of free videos and handbooks to help you learn more about how your septic system works.
