    • On the top of the page, click Retrieve
    • On the drop down menu, choose permit type. There are two (2) categories: Septic and Well.
    • Enter the property address (i.e. house number), street name (without north, east, west, or south), and other information such as lot, block and subdivision. Usually entering just a house number is a good idea as it will bring up two or three properties to choose from.

    Once you have accessed information on your property, you will be able to rotate the site plans, using the buttons on top. You also have the ability to print out the information or e-mail it to your contractor.


    We have thousands of permits entered. Updates will occur periodically. Please contact us at 772-221-4090 if you have difficulty finding your permit.
