Clermont County Public Health has been involved in private water system installations for many years. But here in Clermont County there is such an abundance of public water that homeowners can typically connect to the public system and have no need for their own private system.
Public Health is involved in private water systems due to the potential for homeowners and their families to become sick from improperly treated private water supplies. When you think of a water supply you probably think of a well or cistern, but ponds and springs also can be used as private water supply systems and any of them can carry contaminants. So it is Public Health responsibility to work with homeowners to be sure their system is sited appropriately and has all the components to provide safe drinking water.
If you are planning on building in an area without public water you will need to come into the office and submit an application for a private water system. Refer to How to Apply for a Private Water System Permit for detailed instructions on the application process.
