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 Planning, Building & Development section.)
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.
