Septic System Maintenance Program Fee

The Wood County Planning & Zoning Office is required by the State of Wisconsin to track all pumping and maintenance events for every septic system in the County. To cover the cost of this program the County has a $20 Septic System Program Fee for all owners of septic systems to be paid 1 time every 3 years. This $20 fee will be billed out to all Wood County property owners that have a septic system 1 time every 3 years. The purpose of the program is to maintain inspection and pumping information for all systems and to encourage proper system maintenance that contributes to preserving groundwater and surface water quality. The program fee is used to fund maintenance, program staff and other administrative costs. Having a maintenance program is a requirement of Wisconsin Administrative Code and makes the County eligible for annual grant funding opportunities.
