Septic System Property Transaction Form

On June 19, 2007 the County of Faribault passed the Subsurface Sewage Treatment System Ordinance.  The effective date of this Ordinance is August 1, 2007. 

The goal of the Faribault County SSTS program is to protect the public health, safety, welfare, and the environment by adequate treatment and dispersal of sewage from dwellings or other establishments not serviced by a publicly-owned treatment facility.

The full ordinance has been recorded as document #340765 in the office of the County Recorder.

As a result of this ordinance any property transaction presented for recording must have a Property Transaction Form presented with any conveyance instruments.  The Property Transaction Form is online at http://www.faribaultcountyswcd.com  or you may obtain a copy from the Faribault County Soil and Water Office at (507) 526-2388 or the Faribault County Auditor at (507) 526-6211.

For assistance with the Property Transaction Form or for questions about compliance or enforcement of the Faribault County Septic Ordinance you should contact the Faribault County Soil and Water Office at (507) 526-2388.
