The Chester County Health Department is responsible for issuing permits for the installation of individual and small community on-lot sewage disposal systems, and well construction. Wells permitted include private water supply wells, geothermal wells and boreholes, and monitoring wells used at sites of known or suspected groundwater contamination. The Health Department is also responsible for the enforcement of Pennsylvania Act 537 Regulations whenever there is a violation related to on-lot sewage disposal systems.
