Planning to add a pool, pond, pole barn, or patio to your property? Adding onto your home? Digging or trenching new utility lines? Don’t forget to consider how this might interact or impact your septic system or drinking water system.
An Addition/Remodel review (also called an AOR) is often warranted if you are considering a property or home improvement project. An Addition/Remodel review can help determine if a home or property improvement project may adversely impact your sewage treatment system or private water system. The review looks to see if the project encroaches on your current or replacement sewage treatment system footprints, if the work encroaches into required separation distances, or if the construction process is likely to compact soil or otherwise be detrimental to the proper functioning of your sewage treatment system.
Addition/Remodel reviews are conducted by registered sanitarians and typically do not require a site visit. The fee associated with an Addition/Remodel review varies depending on the scope of the review. Applications for an Addition/Remodel review (AOR) are submitted online. Through the online system you can apply, pay the fee, and get alerts on the status of your review. If you need assistance or cannot use the online system please stop by our office during normal business hours or call (937) 645-2042 and we’ll be happy to help.
