Where do I get a permit?

Usually the person designing the septic system will complete the forms, get the property owner's signature and submit the proposal for review. The application for a permit can be picked up at the Jefferson County Environmental Public Health located at 617 Sheridan in Port Townsend, Washington or download the PDF: Septic Permit Application (PDF).
