The Carroll County General Health District approves sites for initial and replacement private water systems. In order to drill a new water well, a water contractor registered in the State of Ohio must obtain a permit from our office. A Registered Sanitarian (RS) will conduct an inspection to determine appropriate placement for the well. A well permit will not be issued until it is determined a septic permit has been issued or a septic system is already installed on the property.
Our office is able to take a water sample to have it tested for total coliform and fecal coliform bacteria. Please contact our office if you would like to schedule a sample.
