The County of Sonoma is committed to assisting residents rebuild and reoccupy homes within the county after the major wildfires within Sonoma County.
A property's septic system(s) must be evaluated by a Qualified Professional in the following cases:
- In order to connect permanent structures to existing septic systems on properties impacted by the fires.
- To connect temporary housing units to existing septic systems county-wide when no county records are available.
Permit Sonoma has developed a new form for Professionals to use to document the location and evaluate the condition of septic systems. This form is intended to streamline the findings report creation and review process related to fire rebuilding.
