Onsite Sewage Treatment & Disposal Systems

Florida Department of Health in Broward County

The Florida Department of Health permits and inspects onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS), commonly referred to as septic systems.  Properly designed, constructed, and maintained systems protect Florida’s ground water which provides 90 percent of Florida’s drinking water.
