Septic Systems
If you have a private on-site septic system, and your improvement is outside the foot print of your home, you will also need to contact Waukesha County Health Department for a preliminary site evaluation. They can be reached at 262-896-8300.

Permitting is also required for a service upgrade or replacement, window and roof replacement, water heater, furnace and air conditioner replacement. In an emergency situation, a licensed contractor should do the work, and then obtain your permit as soon as practical.
