Soil Site Evaluation- Perc Test
The site evaluation -commonly known as a 'perc test' -consists of an evaluation of the soil and the lot and the subsequent design of the septic system. The site evaluation fee covers the initial test, the design of the system, and the final inspection of the system. The Residential Site Evaluation is for any building in which people will live or stay (for example: a house, apartment, cabin, etc.), The Non-residential Site Evaluation should be used for any business or facility that needs a septic system (for example: a church, volunteer fire department, restaurant, office, etc.).

Environmental Health Approval (EHA)
The EHA covers two main areas: 1) hooking a structure to an existing septic system and 2) adding an expansion to the lot (for example: a garage, a deck, an outbuilding, a pool) or any other appurtenance. Either way, the EHA fee covers an inspection of the site to verify that the addition will meet the setbacks to any well and septic system.
