Banner Environmental Health: Preventing pollution, reducing human exposure to environmental hazards, and ensuring safe and clean drinking water.


Did you know that there are over 58,000 septic systems in Kitsap County? Almost all of the residential properties outside our cities are served by a septic system located on the property – often called an “on-site” septic system.

Septic systems are a complex subject. The easiest way to learn what you need to know about owning and using a septic system is to review our Homeowners Guide to Onsite Septic Systems.


Proper design, installation and maintenance of septic systems protect our ground and surface waters, and reduce the spread of disease. To safeguard the health and safety of Kitsap residents, we review septic designs, issue permits, certify septic contractors and oversee required septic inspections and maintenance.


Learn more about precautions to make sure no one accidently falls into your septic tank.
