To apply for a permit, download and complete an Application Form (DEP4015, page 1) and submit it, along with a Site Plan (DEP4015, page 2), a building floor plan and the required application fee to your local county health department. A Site Evaluation (DH4015, page 3) is needed to determine the conditions on your property and must be performed by a qualified professional. If you wish, your county health department can perform the site evaluation for a fee. Your county health department will also determine the total permitting fee based on the type of system needed for your property and the services you ask them to perform. The information in your application, site plan, building plan and site evaluation will allow the Florida Department of Health to determine the construction needs for the system to serve your property.
