The Onsite Wastewater Program
The Onsite Wastewater Program's mission is to prevent untreated or improperly treated sewage from being discharged into the environment and thus to protect the health of the citizens of Louisiana. The program licenses and regulates onsite wastewater treatment system installers, haulers, sub-manufacturers, and manufacturers of wastewater systems in this state. Sanitarians located in the health units of each parish serve to inform, advise, and operate a permitting system with regard to onsite sewage treatment. Select the Parish Health Units link from the left menu bar to search for contact information for the local health units.
Small Flows Clearinghouse - Funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the NSFC helps America's small communities and homeowners solve their wastewater problems to protect public health and the environment.
All training is conducted through the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Questions may be referred to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Continuing Education Department, at (337) 482-5712 or see the following website: UL Continuing Education.
