Sewage Disposal SystemsIn accordance with Provincial regulations, all on-site sewage disposal systems require Health Department approval. In unsewered areas Building Permits will not be issued until a Sewage Disposal System Permit has been issued. (For additional Building Permit Information, see City Bylaws for the Building Regulation Bylaw, and browse the Building topics in the Business and Development menu.)
Complaints that systems are malfunctioning are investigated and corrective action as required is carried out.
The Health Department is a section of Richmond Health Services, a Provincial Government Agency under the umbrella of the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.
