Pursuant to the County Environmental Health Act (CEHA), the Environmental Health Unit issues permits and inspects the design and installation of new subsurface sewage disposal systems (septic systems). This includes alternative design systems that may be required in certain areas of the New Jersey Pinelands. Permits are also issued for certain home remodeling (additional bedrooms) or commercial renovations (increases in daily flow). The Unit also investigates reports of malfunctioning septic systems; public sewer overflows and odors associated with sewer pump stations.
