A wastewater permit is a written authorization issued by the County, which authorizes the applicant to construct, install, or modify the small wastewater facility. It is required to ensure that the wastewater system is installed in the best location on the property and that it meets a number of county, state and federal requirements.
Wastewater systems must be installed by a licensed installer in Albany County. Property owners may install their own system under the guidance of the County. Applications can be found on our Permit Applications page or can be picked up in our office located at 1002 S 3rd Street in the County Annex Building.
If your property lies within an area designated as the Aquifer Protection Overlay Zone (APOZ), any septic field that is to be installed in that area will have to be designed by a Professional Engineer or a Professional Geologist, licensed to practice in Wyoming and qualified to do such work. The engineer/geologist should contact the County Assistant Planner - Environmental for guidance regarding what will be expected.
