Septic System Triennial Program Fee

The Wood County Planning & Zoning Office is required by the State of Wisconsin to track all pumping and maintenance events for every septic system in the County. In order to cover the cost of this program the County has a $25 Septic System Program Fee for all owners of septic systems to be paid 1 time every 3 years. This $25 fee will be billed out to all Wood County property owners that have a septic system 1 time every 3 years. The program fee is used to fund maintenance, equipment, office supplies, vehicle expense, fuel, program staff and other administrative costs. Having a maintenance program is a requirement of Wisconsin Administrative Code and makes the County eligible for annual grant funding opportunities.

The Department of Planning and Zoning can be contacted at (715) 421-8466 with any questions regarding the Septic System Triennial Program Fee. Specific information on the Triennial Program Fee is detailed below.
