Have a Septic System and need to submit a Notice of Transfer? First, know about a submittal process change

Septic System

To those that submit Notice of Transfer applications for properties with septic systems that undergo a change of ownership, the submittal procedure a slightly changed.  Previously, Notice of Transfer applications could be submitted to both Maricopa County Environmental Services Department or Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.  

Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will no longer accept Notice of Transfer applications for properties located in Maricopa County.  Any applicants attempting to submit the Notice of Transfer through Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will be directed to submit the application to Maricopa County Environmental Services Department. 

For information regarding the Notice of Transfer Program and methods of submittal, please go to https://www.maricopa.gov/2491/Ownership-Transfer.  For questions, assistance, or technical support, please email SepticQuestions@mail.maricopa.gov or call 602-506-6666 and ask for the Onsite Wastewater Program.

REMINDER: Pet Shops/Groomers Regulations Eliminated

Pet Groomers - Cut

On March 21, 2018 the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved the elimination of the requirement to obtain a permit for pet shops/groomers and mobile pet shops/groomers. The regulatory change was effective on the 21st and the current permits for these businesses will be closed out by the Maricopa County Environmental Services Department. Since permits are not required, inspections will not be conducted nor will any renewal notices be sent out to these customers.

Environmental Services Department will continue to respond to nuisance complaints that are received.
