Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal System (OSTDS)

Contact Us


Onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) are permitted and inspected by Environmental Health Inspectors. To ensure systems are installed and repaired in a manner that reduces the chances of pollution of ground and surface water supplies, all persons who want to perform an installation or repair must first get approval and specifications from the Health Department. Proper installation and repairs protect ground and surface waters, thereby reducing the potential for the spread of infectious disease. For more information call the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County at (850) 227-1276 ext 125.
