Beginning October 1, 2017, Wyandot County Public Health will be implementing our updated Operation and Maintenance Program per the Ohio Administrative Code section 3701-29. Property owners will be required to obtain a new operation permit for an existing septic system if there is a sale, transfer, or conveyance of a property containing a 1, 2, or 3 family dwelling on the property, if it is not exempt from real property conveyance fees per the Wyandot County Auditor. A new operation permit will also be required if there is a replacement of a 1, 2, or 3 family dwelling; if there is any substantial alteration resulting in additional bedrooms; or if there is an identification of a septic system failure. These permits are renewable and will be valid for 1 year to 10 years depending on the type of septic system on the property.
