The Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal Program provides for safe and sanitary treatment and disposal of domestic and commercial sewage waste and septage in areas not served by public sewage systems.  The goal of the program is to protect public health by the elimination of the potential for the spread of infectious disease from improperly built or maintained onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems and the protection of ground and surface water from onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems discharge.

To apply for a permit to construct or abandon a septic tank system or other onsite sewage treatment and disposal system (OSTDS), download and complete an Application Form (DH4015, page 1) and submit it along with the required application fee to the Florida Department of Health office.
