Local Government with residents in mind

The Watershed Officer is responsible for issuing permits and performing inspections on septic systems to assure they meet NYS Department of Health codes.  There are many times when banks require septic system inspections as part of the sale or purchase of a residence and the Watershed Officer can assist in those situations.
