Sewage Treatment System Fees

December 13, 2018

Hamilton County Public Health has greatly improved efficiencies in its sewage treatment system program. All documents are now fully electronic, saving considerable time for stakeholders. Payment opportunities are conveniently available online. An automated system informing homeowners that an inspection is upcoming has been implemented, allowing the homeowner to make sure systems are in compliance, avoiding costly re-inspection. Operations for our field personnel have been further automated, improving efficiency and productivity.

While we have left no stone unturned in our search for efficiency and cost-saving, we are now required to re-examine our fee structure. The table below outlines the current and proposed fees. We welcome your comments and concerns. The Hamilton County Board of Health will hold a hearing January 14, 2019, 6:15 p.m. in the second floor Conference Room located at 250 William Howard Taft, Cincinnati Ohio 45219 to consider adoption of the following fees for Household Sewage Treatment Systems, Grey Water Recycling Systems , Small Flow Onsite Sewage Treatment Systems and Semi Public Sewage Treatment Systems.

You may submit comments via mail to: HCPH Attn: STS Fees, 250 William Howard Taft, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219; or by phone at: 513-946-7899. Comments must be received by January 14, 2019.
