Complete the Private Sewage Disposal Plan Review Application (C-U or County) and submit it with a $200 application permit fee (C-U or County). You may fax ((217) 373-7905) or email an application for a preliminary review, but final approval will not be given until we receive a signed application form, along with the fee.
