Onsite Septic Program

The North Central District Health Department provides inspections for new and existing systems in Henry, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble Counties in Kentucky.

If properly designed, constructed and maintained, a septic system can provide long-term, effective treatment of wastewater for homes/businesses without access to city sewage. If a septic system isn’t maintained, it might need to be replaced, costing thousands of dollars.

Existing septic systems may need to be inspected due to sale of the home, building addition, or rebuild of home after a natural disaster. If you are selling or purchasing a home, you can request an inspection of the existing septic system from your local Health Department. Local building code offices require the Health Department to inspect an existing septic system prior to issuance of a building or remodeling permit.

Please contact your local Health Department below for more information or to obtain forms.
