Septic Systems

Dufferin County provides building services for the following Municipalities: Amaranth, East Garafraxa, Grand Valley, Melancthon, Mono, Mulmur, and Shelburne. 

If you are constructing or demolishing in the Town of Orangeville, please visit their website.

For zoning information, please reach out to your local Town/Township. Click here for contact information.


Permit Process

Septic permit applications follow the same approval process as building permits and must be submitted along with your building application when applicable.

The application process can be found here.

Before the inspector can close off a septic permit, the installer needs to forward a copy of the As-Built drawing to our office or provide it to the inspector during an inspection.

Septic Records

Dufferin County took over septic records from the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit in 1997. If you require a copy of your septic design, please call Building Services at 519.941.2816 ext 2700 and a team member will be happy to assist you. This information is available to property owners free of charge.
