Private Water Systems

Many households in Sandusky County rely on private water systems (PWS) such as wells, cisterns, and hauled water storage tanks, for drinking water as they are not served by the public water supplies. To ensure safe drinking water is provided to residents, SCPH staff supervises the installation of PWS by registered contractors. They also offer water sampling services and lab analysis for existing private water systems. Property owners who want to install a new private water system or alter/seal an existing private water system must obtain a permit through SCPH to do so. Similarly, permits are required for homeowners who want to install disinfection systems on new or existing private water systems.
