JCDHE licenses installers and designers of private sewage treatment systems regulated under the Johnson County Environmental Sanitary Code, as well as the sanitary disposal contractors, also known as pumpers, who clean the treatment systems and transport the sewage to the disposal site. These professionals are licensed annually. Each year the lists on this site are populated as licenses are issued. (See Forms and Fees link on this page.)
JCDHE does not endorse any particular on-site sewage professional.
In areas of Johnson County covered by the Code, to engage in the pumping or cleaning of a private sewage treatment system or transport sewage to a disposal site, a person is required to be licensed by JCDHE.
In areas of Johnson County covered by the Code, to install a new private sewage treatment system or make repairs to an existing system, a person is required to be licensed by JCDHE. The companies and individuals on our list have that requirement. (For this list, see Forms and Fees link at the bottom of this page.)
These approved licensed installers can design conventional systems. Some licensed installers are also licensed designers. Licensed designers are persons licensed through examination to design alternative systems such as mound, low pressure pipe or other permitted alternative system.
